2013 Boston marathon

So much to say about Boston, but I don’t have the brain space to put words together. Yesterday I put on a special running shirt, a gift from Terri Little, and read the latest about the news in Boston. I was struck by three things:

1) How much senseless heartache can be caused by a malicious few.

2) How that evil is washed away by the outpouring of love from my fellow humans. Everywhere you look, people pull together to overcome and overwhelm the evil in the world. Don’t be discouraged by the human race. There are stories of triumph and compassion everywhere you look.

3) The quote I read this morning: “If you’re trying to defeat the human spirit, marathoners are the wrong group to target.” -The Mighty Brighties
