after Boston…

after the BOston Marathon Bombing what can be said?

What happened in Boston yesterday can be described in many ways.  The horrible thing is, explanations and investigations to find out why cannot change the what.  It was something a sick mind or minds came up with to serve a sick means to an end.  No matter how many answers are found, there will always be more questions in Boston.

In the coming days, weeks and months, a great deal of attention will be paid to this historic New England city.  Boston is one of the cities  where it can be argued that the United States was born.  Seeds of revolution were sown in its soil over 200 years ago.  It’s a city of people bred from that stock of strong individuals who came together to become an independent nation.

I’m not going to say “united we stand.”  Slogans aren’t what is needed right now.  Maybe later.  It’s obvious that we really aren’t united.  Healing comes first.  Often we tend to dwell on the bad around us… because, it’s what we do…it’s what the news tends to do.  But, there is so much more good out there than there’s bad…we have to believe that.

There has to be.

There has to be.
