Boston is several hours away from us but the fear is close to home. My dentists, husband and wife, and their 16 year old daughter were in the marathon, and were two blocks away from the first explosion. Luckily, Janice had stopped to take a sweatshirt off which caused her to lose several minutes off her time. At first she was frustrated but now it's what probably saved her family.
Today, everyone please send a prayer. A very close friend of mine lives in Waltham, Massachusetts which is one of the towns currently on lock down. I know several other people in the Boston area who, according to Facebook are on lock down and are all safe. Please, no more lives lost.
