I’m just coming online now for the first time since Thursday. Friday was disconcerting and bizarre to say the least, being in lockdown and…well, you’ve all heard about it. This isn’t a huge post about the situation, there’s too much to say, none of which I’m able at this time to put into any words. In fact, I won’t be posting anything about it at all, this is it. So I’m just letting you know I’m back and thanks for sticking around for me. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend.
Update: April 21, 2013
I just want to thank everyone for their kind words and well wishes. I actually didn’t expect that. I am definitely ok. I was fortunately not at the bombing itself, and certainly not in Watertown. However, not being too far, and it being so close to home in so many ways, I was deeply affected. However, it was an emotional effect ultimately. The only way that I haven’t been ok is that my heart breaks for all those who have suffered due to fear, death of a loved one, physical pain or debilitation, and essentially from the terror of it all. It was pure terror that all those people experienced, even during the ‘manhunt.’ So through it, I have always been ok, just heart broken. Through it, I never felt unsafe, but I was concerned for those who did, that was how it affected me. And at this time, it even hurts that one of the bombers was just a kid of 19. That is a tragedy in and of itself. My heart even breaks for him, of course this is not intended to disregard the devastation that he caused or the choices that he made. I just don’t like to see anyone suffer. I don’t like to think anyone feels so angry or afraid that they would hurt themselves or other people. Anyway, thanks again for your thoughts, I appreciate that you care. I know I said I wouldn’t comment any more on this, but I felt I needed to say this, and that this is only part of the impact this week has made upon me.
Thank you my friends,
