A terrible, sad day in Boston
Another terrible tragedy in the USA today at the Boston Marathon. The reaction is instant and people are filled with horror and disbelief.
Too, too sad. Too, too confusing. Too, too many of them.
I found some of the accounts of the event difficult to read, as may you, but I think they are important to read.
and President Obama addresses the nation:
The Baltimore Marathon takes place in October every year, and already there is talk about how to make changes to this to improve security. And, of course, the London Marathon is taking place this weekend. I have friends back home in the UK participating in that event – one that I have been to see numerous times. I, for one, am glad to hear they will not cancel it.
However, tonight the folk of Baltimore and London and in every other town and city will be thinking of the tough and resilient people of Boston and what they’ve been through today.
