A to Z: Nothing (Boston Bombings)

Due to the Boston Bombings, I am taking a break from the A to Z challenge for a day. I was originally planning to write about nicknames, but I'm going to save it for after the challenge. I am reserving "N" for remembrance today.

My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families.

I'm not a news reporter, and I thought a fellow Yahoo Contributor said it best:

"There are a lot of hoaxes (fake photos) circulating the internet of those who were injured and killed in yesterday's Boston bombings. Think TWICE before you share them and please remember two things- One, don't believe everything you read; Two, keep your newsfeed positive. Remembrance is great, but rumors take away from the good in the world."

  1. Such an awful thing to happen, my thoughts are with the victims and families too x

  2. It was such a terrible thing for someone to do.

    Also, did not know there are that many hoaxes,

  3. The whole thing just sickens me. Just got a note this a.m. that there was a gunman running around campus in Waukesha where my friends daughters go. They did get him after awhile. I just don't understand.

  4. It is such a tragedy. The capacity for violence on this scale never fails to render me speechless and sick.

  5. Great post, Kristen, relating to such a bad event.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  6. This event just pulls at my heart and understanding of humankind. Prayers up for the families and all those touched by this tragedy!


  7. My husband is a marathoner who has always dreamed of qualifying for Boston. Running is like oxygen for these people, so I can't imagine the horror of that day, especially for someone who can run no more.


  8. So glad you posted about those photos and to be smart about "news" info out there.

    Prayers are with the many victims and families out there of so many murders that have been happening lately. Writer’s Mark

  9. Boston bombings and now earthquake in Iraq... nasty thins happening. Hope everything will be alright soon.

  10. Awful happenings, such is the world we live in. Thoughts to all involved.


  11. I can't believe how horrible.... I was at the Dr's office yesterday and one of the nurses daughters go to school in boston and lives two blocks away. She wasn't able to reach her daughter until yesterday morning... I can't even imagine...

  12. I am a resident of Bombay, India, a city that has been ravaged by terror attacks on multiple occasions. My heart goes out to all those whose lives have been drastically altered by this horrendous attack. I pray that they may recover soon and that the guilty may be punished.
