Pray for Boston

I had another post planned for today, actually one that on the more serious side, but in light of the events of yesterday I simply ask you this...

Please keep my city in your thoughts and prayers.

Less then 24 hours ago, one of the best days in the city was ruined by a heinous act.

I am okay, I wasn't even watching the race this year, and everyone I know who ran is safe.

But, it is so scary to realize it happened a mere 2 miles from my home. In my city. To my "neighbors."

Please keep everyone up here in your thoughts and prayers, it is scary to have this happen in your back yard.

Everyone I know who ran is safe and I am safe, but we are all scared and shaken.

We're a tough city and will move forward, but just send the white light to the Hub please.
(feel free to tweet this out)

Been thinking about you and everyone else in the Boston area. All I can say is they don't call you Patriots for nothing :).

So glad to hear you and your friends are OK. Praying for Boston -- so heartbreaking. As Mr. Rogers said, look for the helpers. Love that some people ran across the finish line and went immediately to donate blood. The good can't be conquered!

I am certainly praying already. I'm so glad you were unharmed. I truly don't understand this kind of evil act.

I'm glad to hear that you are safe, but I can't even begin to imagine how you must feel knowing this happened so close to home :( I'm still shocked when I catch glimpses of the footage on TV.

I've been thinking about you all day, Tamar...I'm so relieved that you and yours are okay, but how frightening to have that happen so close to home. God bless...

I am glad you and your friends are okay. As I spoke with my daughter today, it is one thing to see these types of horrific events on TV, but when it is immediate and relative to something you are experiencing, the terror is even more amplified.

My prayers to those suffering and the Boston area as a whole.
