BOSTON-The Country, The World…


Thank you from all of us in Boston for your support, love and prayers during this 5 day, horrendous ordeal and tragedy.

Although the mayhem of the shootings, bombs and fire are over, let’s not forget the victims of Monday’s terror at the marathon and the MIT police officer that was killed Thursday night..

Yes, the 2nd bomber has been caught and is in the hospital. We are all relieved by this.
He is being guarded by, I imagine, hundreds of police and federal agents. I understand they’re afraid he might try to kill himself and I heard they might handcuff him to the bed. I can’t imagine why they would, when there’s probably a room full of law enforcement watching his every move and several more outside his door. In addition, the hospital and surrounding area, is heavily secured.

Although we can now all exhale, let’s not forget that there are still 58 people in several of the Boston hospitals. Many have lost limbs and seven remain in critical condition. There are also 4 people dead. Innocent people. Three of them were just watching a road race, an annual event that attracts thousands of runners throughout the country and around the world.

Part of the excitement for spectators, is to cheer them on, offer them cups of water during the race and witness their final step, as they cross the finish line. The police officer who died the other night was shot in the line of duty. He was doing his job and died bravely. Although we’re (I mean the entire country), all relieved that this part of the ordeal is over, the families of the injured, the dead and critical is not. Let’s remember them in our prayers and thoughts.

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 ?

    Thank you. My friends and I were down there working on the school buses responsible for carrying the runners belongings. It was the scariest day of our lives. None of us were hurt physically, but mentally it has been a very rough week. I send my blessings to those recuperating and my prayers to the families of those who lost their lives.
    I would also send a big thank you to the Boston Police, The Massachusetts State Police, the EMT, and Rescue Squads, bomb squads, Cambridge Police, Watertown Police, the volunteers, and everyone else involved in the hunt and capture of the person responsible for so much hurt.
    WE ARE BOSTON STRONG!

    • I’m glad you weren’t hurt and are safe. It’s so frightening to be in a situation so tragic and uncontrollable. God Bless and I agree with you about all those who deserve a huge thank you. There were so many others behind the scenes, like doctors and nurses who were running, then ended up jumping in to help, the two young men, back from military tour, who helped the injured, the man with the cowboy hat who lost both sons and helped save the life of someone else’s. So many….

    Reblogged this on LIFE IN GENERAL and commented:
    Sometimes life comes with tragedies that are unforeseen, like what happened in Boston. I can not begin to experience what the citizens of the city have been through nor what the family members that have lost there loved ones have gone through. This is why i have re blogged this post by a member of the city of Boston. I have been touched and this is my way saying sorry. These are words from a boomers voice.

    • Thank you for your words and reblogging my post. I don’t know what city, state or country you are from. It’s so important for the world, to not forget those still suffering and fighting for their lives. In the end, we are all each other’s brother and sister. We need to treat each other as such. God Bless You.
