Boston: I Pray For You.

Before the assumptions take over the facts…

I hope we all take time to ask our God, our Higher Power, our Deity, our God by another name, forgive me for not knowing them all and I don’t want to leave anyone out so I say “our” God, whatever term is yours.  Our Light.  If your belief is not Higher Power based but compassion based, let us all pull our beliefs together:  to please help us through this.

I hope the assumptions are withheld so the news can be reported factually.

If they don’t know, don’t report.

I hope that we keep our focus that once again, human beings have set a trap for fellow human beings.  With the intent to kill.  Harm.  Maim.

But why are we surprised.

As human beings we have been hurting one another every single day.


Will we be the ones who  self destruct.

Or will we be the ones who change our ways.

Can we put aside our differences and focus on what we all have.  We all have beliefs, we all bleed, we all mourn, we all grieve.  We all hurt.  We all love, we all live, we all fear.

Can we pull together our compassion for the injured.

Can we pull together our shock and dismay.

Can we mourn our world and what we have come  to.

Can we come together and repair.

My belief is in prayer and in ourselves.  I will stand next to you, with you, whatever your belief.  If you believe we can work together.

God bless the injured and their families.  God helps us to help them.

  1. Exactly. Why am I in shock? But, here I sit, unable to do what I need to do because I am stunned and saddened and so very angry. How can anyone intentionally hurt another? I don’t understand. I don’t want to understand. I am just so sad.


  2. I felt heartened by reports of people helping, donating blood, running towards the chaos. Saddened that this keeps happening, with no end in sight. But it is truly better to focus on the goodness and pray for kindness. I think what we are doing, writing and reaching out is healthy. After 30 minutes I turned the news off, to full of non fact and more stress.


  3. Unbelievanle! My runner’s heart hurts for those who had to experience this today.
    Selfishly happy all of my loved ones (runners and family) are safe. Praying for those who aren’t as lucky as I am!


    • I am encouraged by the people. The people who ran to help and extended kindness and comfort to those shocked and misplaced. I still believe goodness outweighs evil. But you are right, truly a sad time.


  4. Very beautiful. I sat in front of my computer last night and could not write anything – I am so numb and in such disbelief that this is still going on. Every time I read about an attack no matter where I wonder why? Not why is God doing this but why would we do this to each other? I am at a loss for words – a young lady I know wrote this on her facebook page that helps to remember that good will overcome “During this time we need to remember that no matter how much bad there is in this world there is always more good. Even the smallest bit of light will always overcome the darkness.” B.W. I have hope in Jesus – our Light. {guess I may have the start of an article}


        • This happened to me as well, after a post I did over a year ago. It weighed so heaving on me that I felt horrible contemplating writing about anything that I felt was so trivial by comparison. I think I understand how you feel. Twice today I started to cry. I was at work and “couldn’t”. But the emotions were there. I kept thinking of …. all of it. My chest still feels heavy. I hope they can all, in some way, feel our compassion and prayers for them.


  5. We were just talking about this today….how suffering unites us. How suffering brings people together for a greater purpose. I’m standing with you. I’d like to think that there are more good people out there than evil. What a week, huh?


    • Such sadness and tragedy, Boston, Texas, the weather disasters and then these past few days… So much sadness. And yet, the ones that are inflicted upon us by others…I do believe fully that goodness reigns stronger and by the multitudes more than evil. I read a quote, forget by who??? That if man was inherently evil we would have killed ourselves off long ago (a very bad paraphrase on my part).


      • I think about the third world countries. Even they have a code of ethics. They value life, shun murder, rape and theft. Totally agree with you.
