You never realize how much it affects you

I was sitting here reading an article written by someone who was near the explosions in Boston and started crying. I feel so bad for the runners, their families, their friends, the spectators, and the city of Boston. I was fifteen when 9/11 happened and I went to school in NYC. I remember the smells from the train when I finally got to go home. I remember all the heartbreaking letters I'd see in the subway everyday when I went to and from school. All the funerals that took place after the attacks. As much as I want to say I wasn't affected I was. And terrible events like this only remind us of those feelings. Sadly being a NYer has made me more aware of these tragic feelings.

Yep my heart hurt when i found out about the poor little 8 yr old boy that was waiting for his Daddy at the finishing line and just picturing him smiling and holding up a sign and a bottle of water.

It's very sad. There is no sense in any violence. And yet human nature remains petty, grievance driven and twisted. Apparently we never do better making sure all the children grow up kind, empathuc and nurturing. some fall through the cracksand become evil doers.

It's so sad. His wife had to have brain surgery and his daughter was hurt too.

Sometimes you do the best you can as a parent, but it's not enough. Other times it's the parents who teach hate, violence, and ignorance.

i agree. i live in Boston and everyday since it's happened i find myself constantly thinking about it. the little boy that died lived around the corner from me and the vigil last night was at the park down the street. it was amazing how many people were there and so touching. 

there's an erie feeling in our city right now. and although i don't personally know any that was hurt or killed it still feels so heavy in my heart.  I know the funeral for Martin will be around here, and I'll see the procession and everything and that will be on the of the hardest things to actually see in this.

ugh it's just awful.

I'm sorry it brought back memories.  I know when I read stories, I get choked up, but I think it's easier for me because I haven't been that close to something like that.  It's still removed from me.  I hope you can process it and put those feelings to something productive, like helping out in some way.

I'm sorry. I can't imagine how hard it is on your community.
