A birarre, almost surreal, event today as two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon.
Much like the Twin Towers, the Boston Marathon is an American icon. It’s the Holy Grail of distance running with only the best and the fastest qualifying to run.
It’s also a major holiday, Patriot Day, in Boston, commemorating the victory of the American patriots over British regulars at Lexington and Concord.
Nobody knows at this point who caused the attack. We can’t presume anything. It apopears to be someone testing this nation, by attacking a symbol of American pride and persistence.
Once again, it will be a futile effort.
