In the wake of the Boston Tragedy, as many other people, I am confused.
How can some one be so cruel, so heartless, as to kill and injure innocent people?
And a few of the victims were Children.
My heart is broken for the family and friends of each and every soul that was affected today.
I am just now catching up on all the details because I could not bring myself to let such evil be broadcasted while Olivia was awake and next to me.
And then I started to think.
My innocent little baby who laughs more than she cries, kisses everything in sight, and runs around and hugs my legs all day.
One of these days she is going to be introduced to the evil in this world.
And it makes me really really scared.
I always say how I wish I could keep her this small forever, but now more than ever, I really wish I could.
I wish I could protect her innocence, I wish I could always make her believe that this world is full of happy. Full of hearts and stars, and cheerios, and the Olivia show.
Actually, I wish that we could all view the world the way that our beautiful children do: No violence, no evil, no hatred. Can you imagine? Everyone getting along, laughing, eating cheerios, playing in the grass, loving life. The world would be a better place.
Knowing that will never happen makes me want to lock Olivia up in our home, and never ever let her leave.
What happened in Boston today was terrible, and I pray to the Lord above that we can find justice for each and every individual that was hurt or killed this afternoon.
I have come across a lot of different pictures, quotes, etc. etc.
But this one struck me the most:
And it’s so true. With all the understandble confusion and sadness going around right now, there is some sort of comfort in knowing that there are still so many Helpers out there.
They braved the explosions to help others.
They directed everybody to safety in the middle of chaos.
They are answering as many questions as they can at this time.
They are donating blood.
They’re out there right now, protecting, helping, cleaning, comforting.
I have faith that justice will be served, and we will find the animal that did this.
But until then, let’s look for the good people, the Helpers, that are doing their best to make this heartbreaking time a little easier on everyone.
And most importantly, let’s pray for everyone in Boston.
