A Moment of Silence for Boston.

This is a sign I see often as I drive into Boston. Today, the city of Boston and the people of Boston are in my thoughts.

The Boston Marathon bombing tragedy struck very close to home for me. I live about an hour outside of Boston and knew too many people in Boston yesterday. Some friends ran the Boston Marathon, others were there cheering on the runners (a large group from my town runs the marathon), some were at the Red Sox game, and others were in Boston just sightseeing on a beautiful spring day during school vacation. It was hard getting in touch with family and friends, but those that I care about are safe. I pray for those that are not and their loved ones.
