Thoughts in a moment of Tragedy

Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families of the Boston Marathon Bombings. Hopefully, your loved ones are safe, and those who were hurt will pull through. And in times like these, you do not mourn or lose alone. We come together.

  1. Our school will be doing a walk in Boston in 3 weeks. It’s scary to think that could have been us. Bless the families who lost a loved one and was affected by the tragedy.

  2. It’s horrible that it happened, though like you I’m not too surprised. Just makes you wonder what kind of word we live in.

    Sad day for Boston and our country, but we do not grow weaker, we grow stronger. And with resolve we will find those guilty for this heinous crime.

    Looking at pictures of blood-soaked sidewalks and everyday people lying crumbled, their clothing in tatters, your mind staggers over thoughts like horror, shock, tragedy. How could this happen? Why? This isn’t some suicide bombing in the distant Middle East. It’s here, in our Western World. It could have been me. It could have been you. What is our world coming to?
    Look closer. Look at the photos of the emergency workers helping the injured; the faces of onlookers creased with pain and shock; the relief and joy of others who have discovered their loved one alive and well.
    Conclusion: They say that it’s in the tough times your true beauty shines. No matter what other members of the human race stoop to, the original beauty of humanity is recognised today in the outstretched hand helping the fallen and broken, in the face marked by grief, and the embrace of loved ones who are still with us. It’s times like these when humanity rises to the occasion and reveals that trait that we all have, though some have forgotten: Love.
    Our love and prayers are with you, Boston.

  5. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families. The same goes for the first responders who helped the victims. I do hope that whoever perpetuated this heinous act be it an individual or a group will be brought in to face justice.
