You know what's really sad, though, besides the fact that it happened? It's that we seem to be getting used to this. We all know the drill. Glue it to the news networks. Watch the President's statement. Every newscast for at least 2 weeks focused on the unfolding investigation. Homeland Security warnings. FBI checking it out. Check the websites throughout the day for breaking news. Wait for the politicians to make statements, which will certainly be forthcoming. I'm already hearing chatter on social media about what political agendas might rise out of this.
Some would say it's sick, and they're certainly right. But more important than that, I think it's just sad. It's sad that we live in a time when the danger of an attack is imminent. I can certainly say there doesn't seem to be as much of a shock factor to this. Oh, people are surprised, but just that it was pulled off. You don't hear people say "who would do this?" or "why?" anymore. Those questions drifted away with 9-11. We know there are people out there wanting to kill us for no reason other than we're American's. The question is, who did it this time?
We certainly take it seriously, as well we should. But it's bad that it's become a way of life. Something we have to look over our shoulders over. Something we had to create an agency to focus on. Remember when the Department of Homeland Security didn't exist? I do. Those days are gone.
It's sad. Sad but true.
Our prayers go out to all of those in Boston. I'm so sorry for this. It sucks. I pray the Lord will be your healing, strength, and comfort. I also pray for our leaders and those investigating this case and that they'll find who did this and bring it to closure soon.
That's all today. Take care everybody.
