One Day at a Time

The winners of yesterday's Boston Marathon, Lelisa Desisa and Rita Jeptoo, had long since passed through Copley Square when the violence about which we know so much and yet have so much more to learn overtook the 117th annual running of the most famous marathon in the world.

The space at the end of that last paragraph is where I was going to put all the facts and information I know, but I know as much and as little as you do. Speculation accomplishes nothing and the TV talking heads do it better than any of us ever will (as if that were something to be proud of).

Right now there's not much any of us, alone, can do but here's something we can share so that others with the skills and the tools can help. Because we hadn't been visited by The Undertoad never meant we wouldn't be and so we begin again to count noses and fingers and toes but don't forget to count your blessings.

We have our loved ones and those nearest and dearest to us and we each have one another. This is NOT the way the world will end, at least not today.
