Like something out of a movie.
Two suspects for the Marathon Bombing,have been found.During the night they attempted rob a 7-11 store,shot and killed an MIT college security guard,
hijacked a couple of cars,police car chase with grenades thrown,and MBTA office shot in gun battle,in critical condition.
One of the suspects is shot and killed and now the other suspect is on the run and theyve ordered everyone in Watertown Mass in a lock down and
surrounding towns are also in a lock down
including my town in Walthm.
They may have him cornered in Watertown at this moment.Incredible story going on here.
Great night at the TD gardens as the bruins became the first local team to play a game since the horrible events on Monday,and the team and fans didn't disappoint.
Started with a moment of silence and then they played a song by Phillip Phillips called Home and on the video screens showed scenes of the rescue and the emotions and first responders after the explosions.Great song and so emotional and then the National Anthem sung by Rene Rancourt long time Bruins fan who sung the national anthem for the bruins in years past and then the fans took over and the whole place resounded with the National Anthem,it was awesome.Boston you make me proud!!!
What a great feeling to see all the tributes to Boston around the country.It really makes me feel good to see how the country rallys around those that experience a life changing event such as the violence we have seen over the years.
As for our area,slowly getting back to normal,but its going to be a long time before things feel right.
News continues to broadcast reports,stories of the survivors,and stories about the three who lost their lives,scenes of armed police guarding the entrance to hotels,the bomb area still closed.Its going to be a while.
Still no word from the bomber,but he or they have to make some announcement at some point,otherwise why would you do it?Some warped reason or cause.
Anyway getting back to the weather,we still are in a cool regime,although the days do get into the 60's,Friday looks to be the warmest day hitting 70 before a strong cold front comes through Friday night and we go back to a cooler than normal temp.No big warmups in sight.
So I wanted to put some thoughts into my blog subject.
So many emotions run through my mind this morning.
Patriots Day in Boston is something special.It commemorates the start our our revolution.
Early in the morning in Lexingtion and Concord they do reenactments of the first battles.A lot of fun to go to.
Then at 11:00 am The Redsox play,the only time a baseball game is started that early.Yesterday we had a victory and everyone was feeling good filing out of the park and walking down to Kenmore Sq. and Copley to watch the runners finish.Its such a festive time,families and visitors from all over the world come to either run or watch.
After about 1400 runners had crossed the line and still over half the runners still to finish,the first explosion goes off,most people don't know what has just happened,then 13 seconds later another blast another block down the street and then it hits home what is happening.
It was an inspiring scene watching as so many police,fire, race volunteers and medical people rushed toward the blast to help,that quick response probably saved a lot of lives.
At this point 3 dead and over 140 people were hurt,many very seriously,with loss of limbs very common.
Its stunning to think there are people in this world whose sole aim is to kill other human beings for some senseless reason.I will never be able to understand.
