Good morning, friends. As most of you know, I'm from Massachusetts. It's a small state and if you're from MA, you're from Boston. The bombings on Monday at the Boston Marathon hit me hard, harder than these things normally do. Which is hard. And it's sad that I actually have a standard by which to judge this. *sigh* Anyway, my daughter (who turns 18 next week) is in Massachusetts with my family. It's been a tough couple of days, and I just wanted to say that my thoughts are with everyone in my home state and throughout the entire country. One of the things I wanted to mention that really touched me was the Yankees moment of silence and playing our "Sweet Caroline" at the end of the 3rd inning last night. I say "our" but of course I mean Neil Diamond's song. That's our song - the Red Sox song. It really touched me that our ultimate rivals did that. Damn Yankees, making me
like sorta kinda not hate them. ;) Then I saw a Chicago newspaper printed this on the front page Tuesday morning:
It just.... it feels personal. Like they reached out to give me a hug. I don't know if that sounds stupid, but it's true. Thank you, New York & Chicago. Thank you to everyone who sent out prayers and thoughts. Please keep doing that, pray for peace and healing. For the victims, friends & family, for our nation.
