Boston Marathon Bombings
My thoughts are with everyone who was affected by the Boston marathon bombings today, as well as the victims of the bombings in Iraq.
It’s been incredible to see the city rising up in the face of such a horrible event- Red Cross said in a recent press release that there is “currently enough blood on the shelves to meet demand,” thanks to all those that donated. There are even reports of marathon runners crossing the finish line only to head straight to Mass general in efforts to donate blood to the victims.
I decided not to attend the marathon last night, so luckily my friends and I were unharmed. The eerie echo of ambulances still lingers tonight as the city awaits answers and comfort. To everyone affected, Stay strong Boston.
