The news that came out of Boston on Monday was nothing short of horrific, and it strikes many as an unthinkable act of malice towards innocent, unsuspecting individuals who came out to watch or participate in the Boston Marathon.
Unfortunately, these acts of malice seem to be an all-too-common event. In the last year, the nation has seen shootings at a school in Connecticut, in a movie theater in Colorado and countless other tales of terror throughout the City and the country.
Despite the too-frequent nature of these events, it never seems to desensitize us to the violence, chaos and tragedy that follow. With each hurtful act, we hope and pray that we will not experience a similar situation any time soon. The hope may be naïve, but it shows a faith in our fellow man that at times does not come through.
Our hearts go out to the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon, as they did to the victims of the shootings at Sandy Hook and the Colorado movie theater. We will keep them in our thoughts and help in whatever way we can.
Most importantly, we will continue to show faith in our fellow man, and we will continue to hope that we will never again see such senseless acts.
