Boston Marathon....2 explosions near the finish line - 04/15/13 03:34 PM

I'm watching the Boston Channel Five news right now. Many people injured....They don't know the cause yet. Many questions. Many injuries, people lost limbs. I'm sending prayers to all of them.

I'm following it closely on the news. I've heard from my daughters in Boston and they are both okay -- they were watching the Marathon from another part of the city.

Glad to hear loved ones have been accounted for, Becky. As far as I know all of mine are safe too. My second cousin works in Boston but she is safe and the rest of the family weren't there to day....whew! My prayers are going up for those involved and their families. Another very sad day in America.

glad to hear that your family is fine Becky. It makes you wonder, what kind of a world are we living in now, when innocent people that are just out enjoying themselves can be blown away by such sick people. My heart & prayers are with these innocent people.

Do people really not care that much about human life? How senseless is that! I heard on the radio this morning that the Boston Marathon had a special dedication to the Newtown victims this year. Each of the 26 miles of the marathon was dedicated to one of the 26 victims at Newtown. What even makes it more sickening is the family of the Newtown victims were sitting near the finish line to watch the race. As of this morning, nobody knew if any of them were injured. My stomach just turns with this news.
