    Re: Prayers For Boston

    I'm still in shock. I'm usually down by that part of the finish line every year because I have friends who run in it. This year though I decided to take the year off and just walk around the city and enjoy the day. I honestly don't know if I can ever go to the finish line again now. It feels like someone just robbed me of my happy memories.

    My thoughts and prayers are to those fighting for their lives and those who lost loved ones today

    Just awful.  Prayers to all involved.   My cousin's husband ran it (had to bow out last year for his first try due to heat) and they just got out of the city about 45 minutes ago. What a mess.

    I hope they catch the person or persons responsible.  At this point, it's the only justice left.

    You can't even go to a marathon anymore with friends and family. Sick.

     




    catch them and then what.. no death penalty! love liberals on most social issues but they tend to sukkk on justice and military, dont care if uts a 14 yo kid, doesnt matter if he can be rehabbed, about retribution  and JUSTICE! pure vengeance!

     

     




    Hey, I am for whatever the perpetrataor doesn't want as punishment and then we create that punishment for the rest of his/her or their lives.  Sometimes I almost feel like the death penalty is too easy.

     

    They're cuckoos anyway, so killing them via the death penalty makes them out to be a martyr. Then again, I think any vitcim's family or families should vote on what they want done, out of respect for them.




     

    I don't know Rusty.  If the people held responsible are convicted and happen to be in their 20's, why pay over $30,000 per year per person to keep them locked up for over 50 years?   If they get caught and are convicted after few years of appeals, 50 Cents worth of electricity in Ole Sparky would take care of these bast---ards just fine?   (I think this would be considered Federal and therefor would be subject to the death penalty.)

    what a bunch of hypocrites LOL. i haven't seen a single thread created saying "pray for the children killed by American drone strikes" 

    FYI, prayer is useless and this isn't a political or religion forum so take it somewhere else.. just like everyone would tell me. when i mention dozens of children murdered by Americans i'm pushing an agenda and nobody wants to listen. now it happens in american and nobody has a problem with non-football threads. kiss my @$$!!!! LOL

     



    You're a pathetic, sick punk and clearly uneducated.

    My thoughts are with all who lost their loved ones, and those wounded by the bombs. Words are just so... insufficient. I keep thinking of the parents of the 8 year old kid. What a nightmare.

    More than anything I wish for Boston and Bostonians to come together and overcome this tragedy.

    I saw a photo of a dad carrying his son, maybe 8 yrs old, with everything below the kid's left leg gone. The older brother was walking next to the dad.

    Re: Prayers For Boston

    I've run Boston 7 times but instead of running this year was with friends whose daughter was running.  We had just exited the Arlington T stop having come back from cheering her on at the Woodland stop when the explosions occurred.  I projected her to be at least 30+ minutes out at that point.  It was chaotic in most areas.  BPD and State Police responding; ambulances trying to get to the scene.  Spectators and runners who had finished trying to sort out what was going on.

    Eventually learned that 2 explosions had occurred near finish line.  I suggested that we simply get to the family meeting area; her section was on Stuart Street.  We waited there it seems forever.  Many, many friends and family waiting and in anguish.  We were standing with one poor guy who was waiting for his wife who had finished just about the time of the explosion.  She finally showed.

    About 3:45 we got a text from our runner.  She was ok but was diverted at Kenmore Square; couldn't finish the race.  We eventually connected with her at the Public Garden and then walked to South Station and got out of town.

    Unless you've been in near the finish line on Patriots Day it's very difficult to comprehend just how crowded it is.  We are fortunate that not more lives were lost. 

    Utmost respect to the medical teams near the finish line. They generally see dehydration, severe cramps, sprains, occasional cardiac issues.  Their response was heroic as was that of the BAA volunteers and Boston Police. 

    And, yes, I pray for Boston and all those effected by this act.
