I don't have any words for what happened in my beloved city of Boston yesterday....just tears.
A classmate of mine from my hometown was one of the victims who was critically injured in yesterday's horrific events. Seeing gruesome images of someone you know over and over again on the news is enough to make you sick to your stomach as I'm sure you can imagine.
I ask that all of you pray for Jeff, the courageous victim from my hometown of Chelmsford, MA as he recovers from losing both of his lower limbs.
In the wake of all this sadness I also ask that everyone stop and honor the brave individuals who risked their own safety to help others in Boston yesterday.
This is Carlos Arredondo, a man who was a spectator at the marathon yesterday. He was there supporting war veterans as they ran in honor of his late son who was killed in Iraq in 2004.
Thanks to Carlos's quick reaction and running towards the explosion to help others, Jeff was given a chance.
We need to thank God that there are people out there in the world like this man.
