Prayers for Boston.

     Boston is one of my favorite cities, so hearing about the tragedy at the Boston Marathon this afternoon has broken my heart. New England has already experienced so much sadness with December's Sandy Hook shooting, and the fact that the last mile of the race today was dedicated to those victims makes me even more sad.

     I saw on Facebook this evening that someone that I went to high school with was attending the marathon with her mom, and they were about 100 feet away from a bomb that went off and had to run for their lives into the streets. My dad texted me saying that he and my mom were planning an outing to Boston tomorrow, and were actually intending to visit the JFK library.

     Everytime I hear about a great tragedy such as this, all I can think about is how the world truly needs to experience God's love, and I realize how many people need Jesus. I pray that instead of more violent acts following this one, the people of Boston and our nation will come together in love and peace. Take the time to remember how a little bit of kindness can go a long way.

  1. I agree with you. What makes me sad is that some people are going to take this incident and use it for their personal "This is what happens when you take God out of..." campaigns. I don't think that behavior is respectful to the victims, nor is it something that God supports.
