My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Boston community at this time. I was deeply deeply saddened to hear about the tragic events that took place this afternoon. My heart goes out to all those impacted.
The City of Boston has always had a special place in my heart. There is just something about Boston that inspires, revitalizes, and reinvigorates me. From Harvard Yard to Fenway Park to the Northend to the Harbor, Boston does it for me. I am positive the City will be resilient and will get through this tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with the injured, the families of the deceased, and the men and women of Boston's emergency services.
I know the "Sheepdogs" of the Boston's emergency services will tend to their flock. “If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen: a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath--a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? Then you are a sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.” ~ Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
