I’m Sad Today

I live about 6 miles from the starting line, in Hopkinton, of the Boston Marathon.  Many times I have gone and watched the masses on their run to Boston. I didn’t go yesterday, I was too busy.  I was out in my garden when my wife came out with tears in her eyes and told me there was a bombing at the finish line in Boston.

I’ve lived in Holliston all of my life, it was a boring town when I was a teenager, but a great place to bring up children of your own as a parent.  Safe, quiet, friendly, insulated from the people that are on the evening news.  Not yesterday.  I was angry, why?  why?? why???  We may never know.

I’m sad today.
