Wow. Not sure what to say here, but had to take the opportunity to express how sad I feel about this.
My wife is a runner. With pride I watched her cross the finish line in San Francisco’s 2011 Nike Women’s Marathon. Today, watching events unfold in Boston, all I could think of is how special that moment was for her. And how this day, some cowardly, soulless individuals robbed so many others not only of their opportunity at a great triumph, but in some cases of so very much more.
Those of us not personally touched by this will never fully understand the loss, but we can let it be known that we care.
This is a sad, sad day. Our thoughts and condolences for victims, friends and family who were affected by this heartbreaking and cowardly act.
Thank you for expressing what is on many of our minds so well.
