Despite having lived outside of Massachusetts for over half my life, I am still a Bostonian at heart. I grew up here. It was a huge part of my life, especially during my teen years. So, my heart breaks to see the venerable Boston Marathon marred by senseless violence directed at the innocent. Tears spring to my eyes at the caring responses from my fellow Bostonians and my fellow Americans. I seethe when I think that someone imagined this brutish action would send their demented, blathering “message” to the people of Boston. To America. To us.

Whoever did this: beware. Remember what we did at Lexington and Concord. Remember that we are the home of Old Ironsides. The blood of those patriots, those warriors, still runs through our veins and have been further strengthened by the myriad immigrants who have made Boston their home.

You will not get away with this.

It's awful. Sickening and awful. My sister was there with the baby, but left and didn't see it. It was very tense until we heard from her. Looking at the crime scene lock down map, my college apartment is in the middle of it. I wouldn't be able to get home if I were there. I pray they find them. And when they do, the Battle of Bunker Hill will seem like a play date.

I don't know what else to say, other than I'm so sorry, Tika. *hugs*
