I am so ANGRY !

I am from Boston, Ma, in the U.S. for my overseas friends in other parts of the world. I only recently moved to the outer Cape, about 2 hours away on the coast.

The Boston Marathon is the oldest and most prestigious in the country. Runners from all over the world train to come here.

There were a few bombs that went off at the finish line. Two are confirmed dead and about 25 people, as of now, have been hospitalized. Two more are confirmed critical. They have lost limbs, legs, ankles.

The bomb squad just found two more bombs and dismantled them. This is dispicable.  There are hundreds of thousands of people here. I used to live down the street from the finish line.

So many times, I have been at that finish line. Standing so close. Probably steps from where those bombs went off. This should have been a happy moment and celebration. Instead, I heard after the second explosion, people started to move through the barricades and started running.

Just when you think you might be safe. These were small bombs, low to the ground. And intentional. I’m sure those spineless terrorists are happy. I hope they are caught and rot in jail.

IMPORTANT NEWS- If you’re in Boston, DO NOT use your cell phones. On TV broadcast,  Police just said that there is a possibility it could set off more bombs. Be Careful and pray for all those injured and their families.

First and foremost, I'm a baby boomer and damn proud of it. The ones reading this post survived. Some didn't..We are the generation that crashed through barriers, broke through the norm and made our own rules. We paved the way for others to follow their bliss. One of the largest breakthroughs was probably equal rights and opportunities for women. Thank you Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. We burned our bras, well, most of us did. We marched against politics we didn't believe in, staged protests not knowing we could easily be silenced by a bullet, experimented with drugs, meditation and guru's. We traveled with backpacks across the country and throughout the world..We had a voice. We had a choice. We had a mission. We had freedom and we were united. I am a writer, traveler, explorer, observer and participant in life. I am part of the expansion of baby boomers who still believe in the original message of peace and love. Take this journey.with me. Who knows where it will take us next ?

  1. MY thoughts and sympathy go to all the people in Boston who were caught up in this terrible event and to their families. I’m familiar with it, because it’s what the IRA did for years in England and Ireland funded by money from overseas. And I fear it’s happening all the time in Iraq, and Pakistan and other places too. The randomness is horrible, and the motivation a mystery, when most people just want to live in peace…. and maybe love their neighbour….


  2. I marked “like” because I liked your passion, but I don’t like it. It’s awful for the whole country.

    Violence against runners? Really? As a Boston marathon runner, Massachusetts my home state, and always my home, my heart goes out to runners, their families, their friends, and to all of the spectators. And to the greater Boston area, and runners everywhere. Much love and prayers from a (now) Wisconsin runner and more generally, from yet another person who continues to wonder when violence will cease. A blessing for healing Boston, from Wisconsin.
