Wanted to let everyone know that everyone I know in Boston is accounted for and safe. I live an hour away from Boston, but know many people who work there and/or are also marathon runners. My GF does occasional work there but they were closed for the day due to the Marathon and Red Sox game on Patriot's Day. My daughter is currently thinking about attending a college in Boston when she graduates high school. Its a great city, and probably one of the worst to have a crisis in. There are only a few real ways to get in or out of the city and every street seems to intersect other streets in a random pattern. Any yet, the police seem to be doing a wonderful job helping those hurt, keeping the peace and allaying people's fears.
Thoughts and prayers are needed and hopefully they'll hunt down the bastards that did this so they'll face real justice. Really fucking pointless destruction. People should be building commonalities instead of breeding distrust.
