Boston Marathon

Today for many should have been a happy day, a day of triumph, of victory and feelings of goals met and accomplishments achieved. Today was the Boston Marathon, one of the most notorious marathons around and one that many runners, myself included, dream about running in and seeing your time at the end.

Today that happy, joyous day was forever marred by not just one soul shattering blast but two blasts that were near the finish line. Many were injured and some list their lives. This is truly a tragic day for everyone. My thoughts and prayers are going out to all those that were there I wish there was more I could do.

What has our country come too? The government is trying to restrict gun laws which is not going to help, criminals will still get them. But what are they or everyone else going to do about today's tragedy? They were homemade bombs which means ingredients you can buy over the counter, but something must be done.
