It is all still new and unravelling. At least 2 bombs exploded along the finish line of the marathon. There are possibly more unexploded bombs that have been detonated by control. Possibly another bomb that went off at the JFK library, still to be determined. At this point, 2 known dead with injuries reaching 60 plus as is being reported.
I have been to the marathon many times but only at the start in Hopkinton. We partied at a friend’s house which is right at the start line and in that town, with all the participants including the handicapped racers, sign in, families and onlookers, it is a throng of which you cannot walk anywhere from an hour before the race, on. Being a small town with residential everywhere, had this occurred at the start, I believe the injuries would have been of a much higher number. It is quite an event.
We don’t know if this is foreign or domestic terror but it is terror to be sure. That there was no advance intel makes it that much scarier. Supposedly there is someone of interest being held at this time. As the investigation unfolds, more details will be available. What I hope doesn’t happen but fear will is, those that take a sensational event such as this to promote an agenda to curtail American’s freedoms for the sake of “feeling good”. We first need to know what happened and how. As usual, PEOPLE caused this tragedy, not bombs. If you must pursue this line of reasoning now, let’s talk about making terrorism illegal.
