My daughter was in Boston Monday for the marathon. She had planned to run this year, but knee pain precluded this. I tried frantically to reach her after getting news of the bombings. Relief doesn’t adequately describe the feeling I had when I finally heard from back from her.She had two things to tell me: first, that she was safe, and second, that she would be running next year. She, along with so many others, chooses to remain free, spirit intact and determined to continue to live fully.
“It’s so much easier to destroy than it is to create,” a writer/friend observed yesterday.
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who are suffering so greatly in the wake of these tragic events.
