My heart goes out to the victims of the Boston bombings,
And to their families, loved ones, and friends,
And to the runners and spectators that were impacted by this tragedy,
And to the people of Boston who had to endure this ordeal,
And to our nation who has been reminded of our vulnerability,
And to the citizens of the world who witnessed the fragility of life,
And to the bombers who’s misguided hatred and anger leads to fear and aggression rather than love and compassion.
May we all awaken to the interconnectedness of all who inhabit the earth and may it bring us peace!
