Boston

Where were you when the attack hit today?

I was at home, working, while walking around for inspiration and ideas to focus on for upcoming meetings. Nothing crazy, it was just a normal day. I sit down and turn the television on for a moment – I am stressed out a bit and walking around isn’t helping. Time to take a break. There it is. At first only 6 people injured was being reported, and it was a slight relief but still it left me in a momentary transfixion. Not again…

The count has now reached into triple-digits, and even worse, a death-count also exists. Although low, you cannot use the word only around it. Every life matters, every moment we have is special because it’s ALL we have. It’s sickening to think that anyone holds the thought that taking a life is of benefit.

To not only focus on the negative, although it’s all that clouds the mind today I do want to give a thank you to all those who helped in the immediate aftermath of the incident – the heros, if you will. First responders of course deserve a great deal of gratitude for running head down into the event – but also a direct thanks goes to the surrounding citizens who didn’t run away, but instead stayed and helped. Some providing medical assistance, some directing traffic, but all united around the assistance of other PEOPLE. At the end of the day we’re all the same, and seeing the release of our everyday boundaries: religion, class, political stance at a moment when it was needed made me proud of us all as human beings.

It’s a dark day but we will come out of it into the Sun. I hope all a quick recovery to all injured today and my thoughts are with all affected, in any level, by the Boston Marathon explosions.
