I have a post almost finished that I was typing yesterday afternoon to post last night, but so sadly, I find myself AGAIN having to pause with a broken heart at an incomprehensible act of unprovoked violence against our fellow humans -- completely innocent and unsuspecting people. People who would probably never even dream of doing harm to the perpetrator(s) if they saw them in regular circumstances.
Again, I am asking.....
What happens to people that they get such a power-trip or thrill out of destroying lives??? They are successfully destroying lives.....! How do people change from playful, innocent children into hate-filled monsters?
My heart is so heavy. Massachusetts is my home-state. Although I have lived in NC for 10 years and love living here more than Mass, I still feel a strong connection with the towns and people there. I have been to Boston tons of times, and one of my sisters LIVES in Boston. I thank God that she wasn't in the marathon crowds yesterday, like she has been many other times.....still, it was scary when I couldn't get a hold of her on her phone yesterday after I found out what happened. I was a few hours late in hearing about it, and I thought I probably would have heard from someone by then if anything was wrong, but still.....that sliver of uncertainty chilled me to the bone.
And knowing that others felt like I did, but had awful outcomes, not relief like me, just HURTS.
I am SO SORRY for them, for what they have lost - physically and emotionally - and the only thing I can do is pray....and pray.....and pray.....
