The Boston Marathon



Boston Marathon, April 15, 2014

It is hard to believe that is has been four years since the Boston Marathon Bombing on “Patriot’s Day”, April 15, 2013. 

The bombs were set to explode close to the Finish Line during the Marathon resulting in the killing of 3 people, and injuring 100’s of other runner’s and bystander’s.

Today, as the Boston Marathon takes place;  let us not forgot the Tragedy of 2014, and wish prayers and luck to those running today, “Patriot’s Day”.

    I was actually in Guam when it happened, so I got news a little late. My mom’s cousin’s husband was running the marathon (Well, I suppose she’s my cousin, too! By my mom’s first cousin). They were supposed to meet up at the finish line at right around the time the bomb went off. The husband was slowed down by something about half a mile back, and the cousin was caught in typical Boston traffic and running late. They weren’t able to get in touch with each other for hours because the phone lines were so clogged – all they knew was that they were supposed to meet at the finish at that time and were both assuming the worst. They finally got in touch a few hours later, but he couldn’t make it home until that night because of all the goings on. What a scary situation!

    God does work in many ways. How lucky that your cousin’s husband was delayed during the race, although he was probably thinking this is going to slow down my time. The same for your cousin sitting in traffic upset by not getting to the finish line in time. After finding out what happened it must have been so scary not to be able to get in touch with each other. Although such a tragedy for so many; how lucky for your cousin and her husband that someone was truly watching over them. Thanks for sharing your story.

    I am wary of any gathering or big events. There have been several bomb threats over here and an actual bombing at a sports arena in my area. I am thankful that I live out in the countryside these days…


  4. It is scary to think how these people’s minds work. Better to think of the positive I think – there are so many people who rush to help in an emergency. Also, to not allow these events to run or ruin our lives.

    As much as their are a few people who feel the need to bring such extreme violence, you are right there are many more who are there to step in to help. Being near NYC we had the same with 9/11 – in all the devastation and loss of lives, it also brought so many people together. There are numerous examples of such giving that I will share one day. Thanks for your thoughts!
