Tragedy at Boston Marathon

There are few things more joyful than the end of a marathon: true for runners, supporters and volunteers. I am profoundly sad...

The words of Mike Kinman are helpful to me right now:

When events like this happen there is the temptation to get sucked into the coverage and spend hours in front of the TV. Resist that temptation. Giving in to it only gives power to those who would kill and maim and destroy. You will lose nothing by waiting until 10 pm for an update or waiting until morning. But if you use that time caring for someone in need, or saying your prayers, or even having a cold beer with a good friend ... you will have done your part to testify that the forces of evil will never, ever be victorious.

Who is "directing" these people who feel the need to end and destroy their own lives and the lives of others? We would like to think that most are "mentally ill," but with today's constant climate and culture of violence, one has to ask themselves how far away from "insanity" are any of us???
This video made me cry!
