Marble Run and Marathon Runners

Remembering the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing

After almost a week of complete disruption, where evil seemed to prevail, we have some relief from the terrorist attack for now. I can tell you that I was on pins and needles waiting to hear from my cousin and his wife. They were headed to Boston on Monday for a business trip. They saw the whole thing from the airplane and landed just before they closed down the airport. Then they had to go on a 2 hour taxi trip before they could enter their hotel. Only to find out that they weren't allowed to leave their hotel because the conferences were being held there. Following that, they learned the town was on lock down. I just heard from my cousin and he is safe at home now. I would like to hear more from his perspective of the events that he saw at a later date.

Meanwhile, from the photos you can see my grandson playing with his marble run constructed from molded plastic in blue and orange. With the second photo I added a fire-like-texture shooting across a gray background at lightning speed.

In addition to my cousin coincidentally being in Boston on Monday, a former piano client of mine is a runner and she had crossed the finish line, received her medal and was 2 blocks away when she heard the very loud blast.

Here is what my friend posted in lieu of entering the next race this weekend... because we will not live in fear!


 Let's run our marathons, watch baseball games and enjoy our freedom! Boston Strong!
