Being out sick yesterday I felt like I had a front row seat to the horror that unfolded in Boston. I originally heard via Anderson Cooper tweeting "Investigating incident at the Boston Marathon". I flipped on the closest news channel and I sat in horror. What I saw was beyond what the brain should ever witness. The horrific pain of our fellow human beings is beyond measure. My heart aches. But the one thing that caught my eye are the volunteers, runners, spectators and police who ran towards the explosions to help those gravely injured. In our darkest day there will always be a glimmer of hope and some, although slight, faith in humanity.
Today my heavy heart sits with Boston and everyone who was affected by the senseless act of violence.
