Greg and I are both heartbroken by the terrorist acts in our hometown of Boston. We send our prayers and thoughts to all that have lost their loved ones, to those that are injured, and to all families and loved ones affected by this tragedy.
Greg has summed our feelings about this tragedy:
Some thoughts from Boston (for anyone who cares):
1. Thank you to WERS (88.9) for playing music. The constant bombardment of news that has not changed since yesterday, followed by radio stations holding "open forum" for people to call in and spill more hate and fear is overwhelming.
2. Its scary out there, but being scared, or mean, isn't going to change anything that happened, it isn't going to prevent anything that is going to happen today. Lets not spend the day being angry. Be nice to each other. Buy a coffee for the guy behind you in line or pay the toll for the next car in line when you commute in.
3. A special thanks to every volunteer in the city that can be seen running towards the blast. The people working the race are everyday citizens, most decide to volunteer at the race because you get a free jacket. They are not police or firemen, just people like you and me, well.. heroes now, A little braver than you and me.
4. I was reminded of a quote from "Remember the Titans" (A movie I love) that just stuck in my head today: "I was afraid of you, Julius. I only saw what I was afraid of, and now I know I was only hating my brother." Spend today looking for the good and not just what you're afraid of.
