When will these senseless acts end? This morning we woke to the news of twin bombings during the Boston Marathon. Two bombs exploded close to where the finish line was. It has killed 3 people with many more in a critical condition and over a hundred injured.
The bombs went off about 3 hours after the elite runners finished the marathon but there were thousands more that still had to finish. Some 27,000 people had registered to compete. There were runners from Adelaide as well as many others from all over Australia but the good news is that they are all safe.
The London Marathon is this weekend and so tight security will be in place for that. Let's hope and pray that nothing will happen during that marathon.
I just hope that the perpetrators of this insidious act are quickly brought to justice. What makes someone want to do it?
