    Default Boston Marathon explosions

    There were explosions at the finish line of the Boston marathon. No info on cause or casualties that I know of but some of the footage that was airing on the TV news showed blood in the streets. I turned it off.

    The folks on this forum don't really strike me as the types who are into those kinds of adventures, so I would bet they are all ok, but then again, I could be wrong, and someone could be hurt.

    On another note, I think we focus too much the visible disasters as they strike, and not enough on healing humanity as a collective mind to prevent such situations from even happening in the first place. The problems that don't produce immediate results we can see may in actuality be of a far worse nature.

    Can't see the vid, but I read that two people died so far. WTF???

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I hate suffering.


    Ironically, the things I would do to whoever did this...

    Some friends of mine from my old church that still live just down the road from me were at the explosion site and were all taken to the hospital. The father is still missing. Please pray. They were really excited about visiting Boston and the daughter had just posted a photo of them all in matching red sox hoodies a couple of days ago.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    That's terrible my friend. I certainly pray they will be ok.

    Yeah, all flights grounded..

    I always forget this holiday in MA - "Patriots' Day." My mom reminded me this morning, as some schools/businesses are closed. I made some offhand crack that it'd be a good day for some shit like this to go down. Creepy.

    @Beorn, keep us up to date about your friend's family. I hope they're all right.

    My grandparents were down there today for some medical shit, but more toward Huntington Ave than Boylston where the explosion occurred. They're not picking up, but I'm assuming they're trapped in traffic. Trying to check on the rest of my friends who live/work/frequent downtown. Fortunately, most of them don't give a fuck about sporting events. All the same, this is obviously.. messed up.


    They just found & disabled several more devices. I think that makes 4 more they found. . . sheesh.

    Thanks for the prayers. I just found out they just have minor shrapnel wounds in the legs. I think the father is missing because he wasn't with them which would mean there's a good possibility he's safe, but just can't get a hold of them for some reason.
