Sending our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by today's event in Boston. It is so easy at this time to think 'oh no, the world is really going to *%#$' but here is what I saw. The flags of countries all around the world flying together. People from many nations running together. Spectators sharing the day together. People running to help when the bombs went off with no thought of the risk to themselves.
Whether it was one person or a group of people that were responsible for this, they are outnumbered by all the good people at that event, and in this world. It is unfair that such a small number can cause such great devastation and our thoughts today are with those whose lives will never be the same.
Today is a day to cry, but it doesn't have to be a day to go into fear. It can be a day to send as much love as you can muster to everyone who needs it.
