A note about the Boston Marathon Tragedy

As most of you know, I reside just an hour outside of Boston, so the Boston Marathon  bombing hit pretty close to home for me.  Though as a nation, when any event like this occurs, we’re all confused and full of questions.  There’s no logical explanation as to why any person or organization would want to inflict this sort of pain on a city and it’s inocent citizens, because events like this can only be carried out by cowardly monsters.  I call them “Monsters” because these individuals are lacking the basic and essential characteristics that unite the human race. 

At times like this, it’s important to remember that WE, as a citizens of this great nation are responsible for making our country a better place…

I usually share DIY & home inspiration, but today I’d like to share a different type of inspiration.  These are my thoughts about how we can all play our part…

    1. Karen,

      I’m not sure I understand your point? This post is simply about working together as a nation to help those in need. We are seeing so many people work together right now and do what they can to help during this awful time. That’s the point of this post…not about how I was personally affected. I think you’re misinterpreting something here.

  3. Picklee-

    I agree with you entirely– it is sad that it takes this kind of tragedy for people to understand the importance of working together and being kind to one and other. As brothers and sisters sharing this earth, we are all truly feeling this tragedy.

Even if we need to heel as a Nation we can still take a little time to focus on making the world around us a more beautiful place. I really appreciate everything you said. From SF to Boston, our thoughts are with all of you guys affected by the tragedy.
