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.
