Photo-A-Day #2930

After the events in Boston yesterday I couldn’t do much other than watch the news, Facebook and Twitter. I couldn’t put into words exactly what I was feeling about what happened without raging so hard with hate and anger or crying about the terrible loss of life, innocence and joy. While I most certainly feel that terrible things happen to the individual or individuals who committed such a heinous cowardly act, what is most needed in times like this is courage and love.

Courage was what I saw displayed by the first responders, runners and ordinary people. I have read stories of acts of kindness and love from complete strangers to each other. That is really what is needed in response to these terrible acts.

For us, we took Andrew to the park to play. Watching him run around kicking the soccer ball and giggling like crazy just filled me with joy and then gripped me with fear. Fear that this sweet little boy could be ripped from our lives because of an act of extreme selfishness and cowardice. I just want to hug him and his sister forever.
