What to say? We are Americans, and we pull together in a crisis. My heart breaks for the lives lost, the people injured, the dreams shattered. A marathon is a celebration...I cherish the memory of each time I crossed the finish line...and an attack on that celebration on a day dedicated to American patriots has far-reaching implications for our day-to-day lives. Even though I've spent far too much time studying incidents like these, I still find it so hard to grasp the thought processes of a random killer like this bomber. People who make war on innocents and children are vermin.
