The explosions echoed through the streets of Boston. Glass fell from the skies and rained down on the innocent runners below. People screamed in fear and the roar of sirens came racing towards the danger.
A moment of silence and prayer please for those who dies, those who are pushing to survive, those who are injured, and those who are waiting and watching their loved ones…
Two bombs exploded in the packed streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing two people and injuring dozens in a terrifying scene of shattered glass, bloodstained pavement and severed limbs, authorities said. Why did this happen? This is a tradition in Boston, these aren’t amateurs racing these are professionals. Runners from all over the world come to the Boston Marathon every year. I’m actually holding back tears as I write this. Why did this happen?
CNN is reporting that at least 10 amputations have been carried out as a result of the attach, and that the bombs were likely designed to propel shrapnel. In Boston.com breaking news, the news site reports that authorities are questioning a person of interest with regard to the bombings at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
This is the most tragic of all the news according to a law enforcement official one of the two victims killed today was only eight years old, various media is also reporting. The FBI and the White House are deeming this a terrorist attack, although it is unsure if it is domestic or international.
Even other athletes have taken to social media to say their prayers.
