It is with a heavy heart that I write this.
A cowardly terrorist attack ripped into innocent people at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. An eight-year old is dead, as is at least one other. Many people were seriously injured, some with missing limbs.
As always with incidents like this, the intial information is sketchy and unreliable. I urge patience and caution. The investigators are top-notch, and they will get to the bottom of this. We will know what actually happened in due time.
Until then, give your thoughts and prayers to the wounded and their families.
