A pause to remember

To the people of Boston, and participants, families and friends of runners in the marathon:  I send my positive thoughts and prayers for healing of bodies, minds and spirits.  At times like this I try to focus on all the good things happening in the world, refusing to give the terriorist(s) any of the focus and attention they crave.  Thank you to each of the helpers who rushed to the aid to those injured, you represent the best of our country.

1.  For each person who gave help during this crisis
2.  For the life of each person who survived
3.  For a country that is still a safe, free place to live in spite of what others try to do

So so sad. I dread the world we bring our children into so I find it wonderful to 'find the helpers' and to try and be one too!

This is a cheering post Patti. When I was watching some of the video I could see the medics and police running TOWARDS the blast. I don't know if I could ever be so brave.
