I figured it wasn't worth a damn or fitting for that matter after the tragedy that happened at the Boston Marathon to write my original post on the benefits of using Apple Cider Vinegar. At this point, who really cares about apple cider vinegar. Although, after being in Boston on Monday to enjoy a long over due "day date" with my husband watching the Red Sox and enjoying the Marathon, to then have it cut short by this senseless act of terrorism was very scary and unsettling to say the least. I felt like I needed to write about it. We were probably about a 1/2 a mile away from the explosions when they happened and I know the fear I felt trying to flee the area, I can only imagaine what the hell those poor, innocent victims were feeling whose lives are now forever changed by this. I don't know about you, but Im struggling with this. Im struggling with feeling helpless and scared watching the news yesterday and today. Im struggling  with realizing this is the world we live in...and as I look at my girls, I struggle with  knowing the world I grew up in as a child is long gone. My kids and yours are not going to have the care free childhood that we had. That's not to say Im not going to do my absolute best to try and give it to them, but the reality is, we are up against a much more dangerous and unpredictable world now. The emotions Im feeling over this tragedy is of course anger, but more so than ever there is this underlying, overwhelming sadness. Im just so sad that our children have to grow up in a world where bombs go off at major events and schools get shot up by crazy lunatics. Our children, in all their sweet innocence have to deal and fall victim to these unspeakable tragedies even though we try our hardest as parents to protect them. Im sad because their innocence is slowly getting chipped away. Piece by piece, tragedy by tragedy...it's our children who will suffer the most from these acts of violence because they are our future and the future is a scary place.  

Change is a hard thing to come to terms with. After 911, American's lives drastically changed forever, but little by little we were able to get back to our "new normal." There have been other senseless acts of violence since then, most recently the Masacre at Sandy Hook Elementary, and now the explosions at the Boston Marathon. Im sure from Sandy Hook, the way we protect our children at school will forever change and quite possibly the way sporting events are held may change after this tragedy. These changes in our lives were not asked for, but are now necessary for our day to day protection. Going through all these emotions, I stop and think how the hell did we get to this point?

So after grappling for the past two days with all these emotions and feeling such a sense of helplessness, I decided I'm going to continue to do what any damn good (non practicing) Catholic would do, Im going to get down on my knees and continue to pray. Im going to pray for the victims and their families, for all the wonderful first responders, by standers, doctors and nurses who risked their lives to save others. Im going to pray for Boston and all its magnificence! No one, but the people who are from here can truly understand how special and resilient Boston is. Im going to pray for the asshole(s) who did this because I will not let their hate and evil ways get the best of me. I refuse! Im a true believer in karma...what goes around comes around. You do not do something so horrific like this and get away with it. So Im going to continue to pray because I believe in the power of prayer.

I feel the best thing to do... when you don't exactly know what to do... is to simply... pray.

The bombing in Boston will always be one of the saddest events that happened in America. On the other hand, you have earned my respect for writing a topic that's totally different from your genre just because you want to be one in this very tough situation this country is going through. My heart was broken when I heard about the news. How I wish people who have bad intentions will soon realize that what they do will not bring any good thing to them.

Can I just say what a relief to discover an individual who really knows what they are discussing over the internet. You actually know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story. I can't believe you aren't more popular since you certainly possess the gift.

Boston Marathon will always be one of the saddest incidents in the American history. Almost three years had past, but people still have the stigma of the tragedy. Until now, I feel really sorry for the families who had lost their loved ones. I know there's no more way for me to take those lives back, but I would still offer a prayer to the victims.
