Today I was going to have a different blog post, but I felt that it was inappropriate. Because after yesterday's events things just seem a bit more trivial than before.
I won't wax poetic about the events that surrounded the Boston Marathon yesterday except to say that I am and ask you to continue to pray for our city, the people who were affected, the people who were there and the many who watched in horror as it unfolded. It is an absolute tragedy, a senseless crime. If there is one thing we can do to help those around us it is to comfort, to pray, to support.
Boston is my home. Many people are hurting, are scared, are angry. But as President Obama stated yesterday "Boston is a tough and resilient town, so are its people. I am supremely confident that Bostonians will pull together, take care of each other and move forward as one proud city and as they do, the American people will be with them every single step of the way."
