Special Comment-The Bombing at the Boston Marathon

Posted: April 15, 2013 in Uncategorized

Before I get started, take a read of my oldest’s blog at http://maige23.wordpress.com/. Much love to my Shuggy!!!!!

Now to my special comment on today’s bombing at the Boston Marathon. The Boston Marathon is one of the iconic races in the running world. The runners work hard year round to be able to successfully run 26.2 miles. Their families, friends and fans of the sport are there cheering on the runners then BOOM! Out of nowhere, 2 explosions at the finish line and 1 at the JFK library. Yes there is much to be investigated to find out who did it and why. This comment won’t even dive into that but what we will dive into is our response.

Before the debates start on who failed what from the political leaders, it is time to simply say enough is enough. All of the national tragedies and we still can’t come together as a nation. When is enough enough? Our political leaders stay busy trying to keep their jobs instead of doing the difficult job and lead. Does all of the political theater really mean anything when people can’t run a marathon or go to school without getting shot or blown up? Our country has truly lost perspective and the trivial rancor which is our leadership is truly sickening. So, what will our response be for this? Lets try something different. How about some prayerful leadership? How about setting aside trivial differences and work together. Really, enough killing, enough arguing, enough silliness. Just my .02 cents….

  1. Insightful Chuck! The thing that worries me most as a Father is what legacy we leave our children. Generations have challenges and in the past we have managed to overcome them and continue forward. Now, the challenge is US. WE are losing the ability to coexist and cooperate and unify to overcome our issues. And so much is at stake.

    Brother, I worry that IF history ever contemplates the fall of the US, it will lament that the decay came from within – our inability to work, love, vote, live, and pray together. It will say that we allowed ultimately minor differences to make a major difference in the path of our nation.

    Why can’t we all just get along? We are here to build each other up, but USA is known for tearing each other down. So sad to see where this country is headed, and that a lot of hard work from our ancestors is failing today. This is just another wake up call, when will we listen!
