Welcome to THEJNSREPORT’S: Terror in Boston – The Boston Marathon Bombings
After staying glued to the tube and watching BBC and CNN and various other news broadcasts for updates as to the carnage and insane acts perpetrated yesterday in Boston, I still struggle to wrap my mind around what we all saw yesterday. I struggled to believe it even while reading how some people were happy that the events of yesterday took place.
My thoughts in those regards are that no one should wish yesterday’s events to occur anywhere in the world. The fact that there are some people who truly believe and feel that it should only speaks to what’s wrong with the world.
I truly am at a loss to comprehend how some people have such a blatant disregard for life that they could actually bring such an evil plot to fruition. The details that we know presently are that the injured and critical condition numbers reported are in constant flux and on the increase while there are three confirmed dead including an 8-year-old boy.
Secondly, that these were not necessarily high-tech bombs but designed as “crude” IED (Improvised explosive device) weapons releasing ball bearings, nails, and other metal shrapnel upon detonation into crowds of people who were simply cheering on participants in the worlds probably most famous foot race “The Boston Marathon”. I mean to have run all that distance and at your most vulnerable moments just as you’re crossing the finish line a bomb greets you. Absolutely devilish and insane!!!!
Once again what’s being tested here is the resolve of the people. Our emotional response to events like yesterday is also being tested. Information is critical to understanding what’s happening and whose behind this heinous attack. How we get that information and where it comes from will also be critical. In my opinion this tells me and shows me that nothing and no one can make us safe. Life is precious, yet there are those who want to control, rob and deprive others of it.
They will manipulate and use all manner of device and strategy at their disposal to carry out their agenda. We as human beings who are sane must resist evil, remain strong, and be there for one another, but not irrationally or emotionally be compromised into giving up our liberties for a feeling of safety. Ask any prisoner current or formerly incarcerated if he/she feels safe or secure locked up. Our freedoms are at stake.
That being said. Whoever is behind these acts of terror and psychological warfare I pray are found out and brought to justice. For all of us here at THEJNSREPORT our heart-felt prayers and condolences go out to all those victims and effected by the Boston Marathon bombings.
