Good Morning America and all of the other news outlets are reporting this morning that while there were first responders on the scene of the Boston Marathon for unrelated reasons, not knowing that there would be some evil-doer setting off explosions- who jumped into action, “regular folks” also shined as super heroes.
The latest stats – “3 dead, 145 injured, 15 critical” the youngest death: Martin Richard, 8 years old. His dad had just crossed the finish line, hugged him and walked away. Moments later, the boy is dead. I’m so sorry sweet boy.

I appreciate your comments and insight on this, yet another heartless, senseless, evil, purposeful tragedy.
Until next time …..
