It always seems ridiculous to blog when something horrible happens. I’d been meaning for a couple weeks to write about how proud I am that my sister recently qualified to run the Boston Marathon. It had seemed like that might be a nice distraction from the heightened security concerns in and around Guam where she lives.
I feel so sorry for those aspirants and participants whose hopes of running Boston have been tarnished by this event. And most especially, I’m praying for those injured and killed in the bombing, as well as their families.
