Boston is in our hearts

see more by

It has taken me a few days to let the horror of the unfathomable events of the Boston Marathon fully sink in. I wish I had something profound to say, but at times like this, there are no words quite appropriate other than to express Boston is in our hearts and will continue to be so in the days to come.

I pray for the families of those lost and for those injured, I also pray for the runners.

Marathon runners are special people. 

I am a runner. Not a marathon runner, but a half marathon runner so I can relate on a very small scale to what this event must have meant ~ a celebration of goals attained, hours sacrificed and the ability to do something not many can do.

These events really are a celebration of the human spirit and what is possible when you make a goal and put in the time and work get there.

I hope in the aftermath of this tragic event we can take a moment to celebrate the runners’ spirit. It is the strong spirit of the runners and the city of Boston that will heal and triumph over this tragedy.

Please join me this morning for a moment of reflection for Boston ~ whether you offer up a prayer or send your loving thoughts their way.

    Well said Jen. I hate to think of the world our children live in. This crap never used to happen when we were kids. Now it is becoming fairly regular. What’s next???

    It’s scary and heartbreaking. Makes me question this world we live in; but then at times like this we also get to witness the good in people at the same time. So tragic…
