Sending Love to Boston

I spent most of yesterday and today so saddened, confused, and disgusted by what happened at the Boston Marathon that I could barely think about anything else.  I can’t bring myself to sift through the photos and videos, so I know I’m not knowledgeable enough to write a thought-provoking post, but simply ignoring this tragedy seems equally wrong.  I am so heartened by the number of people helping by offering their homes, their clothing, their food, and their blood to people in need.  It warms my soul to know that the rest of the world is thinking of us, too.  I’m not going to make any predictions about who did it or discuss the inappropriate political responses on twitter.

Many people have been posting that wonderful Fred Rogers quote about the helpers.  Two of my biggest childhood icons were Fred Rogers and Bob Ross.  They always looked at the world with such beauty, sympathy, and understanding.  We could use a little more of that.  Til next time.

  1. I love Boston it is a really great area, it was therefore sad to see concerning the bombing. I have been seeking all online at content articles, images and movies yet there is the one which definitely is within my head. It was created by a guy named Alex Jones, he talks about that group of adult men exactly who look like active in the strike, however no news channels or internet websites have spoken about these individuals. I found that to be quite exciting. The Authentic Boston Marathon Assailants

  2. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays..
