At the finish line, where victory is celebrated; instead, loss of life and limb and dashed hope. Bombs set off at the Boston Marathon to threaten, destroy – terrify. A selfish act to destroy another being: innocent victims of hate. Where some give love and compassion, others feed on hate and take from others what they do not have – the joy of life; the striving for excellence.
Spring and all its promise of new beginnings has found mixed within a seed of cruelty, causing us once again to hug each other and weep for strangers.
Lifting up prayers for hearts broken through tragedy. May they find peace and hope and strength in Boston.
