Today’s blog is not about a new story or book or author news. I simply wanted to say once again how very saddened I am about the events that took place at the Boston Marathon on Monday. I heard about what happened while sitting in the dentist’s office waiting for my son. I was listening to a book and just halfway listening to what news was being shared through the waiting room speakers. Then in the car, we got the full story and once we arrived home the weight of it all hit me. Not until I watched CNN replay the actual incident did the shock and disgust weigh in. The cheers and happiness as racers crossed the finished line and then the instant panic and horror that arrived in the next second…unreal-unthinkable.
I couldn’t send out tweets about this until some time on Tuesday but I’ll just reiterate and rephrase one here now: “Life is too short to live not doing what you love. We are (sadly) being reminded of this way too often.”
My prayers continue for the Boston victims and their families around the world.
