Today was a tragic day for everyone all over the United States. Earlier today, the Boston Marathon ending in horror as two bombs exploded near the finish line that killed three people and injured over 130. When I saw this on the news I almost dropped to my knees in sadness. Being an avid runner, I know what the Boston Marathon means for the people who have put in hundreds of hours training for that sole event. To have it end in nightmare is what no one ever expected. The Boston Marathon is for runners to give it their all, for fans to cheer on strangers as they pass by, and to maybe see a world record be set. It’s an event where people from all over the world come to race against the best. For such a prestigious event to end in such horror kills me to no end.
My heart and prayers go out to the people who were injured and to all of their families. Our nation is united behind you and you are all in our hearts.
