Boston Marathon Bombings

This is a video taken right at the moment that the two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, today at 2:50pm EDT.

Boston.com viral video page - Boston.com

Two people were killed, including an 8 year old boy, and at least 28 people were injured; some quite severely including lost limbs. There are confirmed reports that they have a suspect in custody; the person is injured and in a Boston hospital under guard.

Jeebus ... I feel so badly for the families of the victims that were killed and for those that were injured so severely. Horrible. I can only be thankful that it wasn't any worse... and it could have been much, much worse.

Especially irritating since the length of the marathon (26 miles) was intended to honor the victims of Sandy Hook.

One of my schoolteachers participated in the Boston Marathon every year, but decided to stay home this time.

This is one of those days when I do not want to live on this planet anymore.
