How could I not love a place called Beantown?
My thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston and those runners and tourists at the Marathon, where two explosions took place this afternoon.
UPDATE: My prayers are directed to my fellow blogger, Karen, whose daughter and a few of her students were at the marathon today. They are safe and trying to get home. I will be thinking of them all and sending courage and strength. I remember how hard it was to wait for loved ones whom I knew were safe to get home from Lower Manhattan on September 11.
