The Red And The Blue wishes to minute its sympathy and condolences to the families of those killed, and to those injured, in the disgusting and cowardly attack on runners in the Boston marathon; it is to be hoped the FBI and other federal authorities in the US locate — and punish — the perpetrators.
I simply want to say that any terrorist attack is an outrage, and especially when innocent civilians are wantonly maimed or killed.
But to target a civilian sporting event — and one traditionally involving heavy participation by families and children — is particularly appalling.
At the time of writing, the identity of the individuals/group/country that might be responsible is unknown; indeed, local Police and other authorities will continue their pursuit of the culprit/s, and we will no doubt know who they are soon enough.
But this short post is unconcerned with the filth who committed this heinous attack; we pray for the victims and their families and hope — God willing — that the truth of the matter is uncovered in due course, and that some sense is able to be made of today’s tragic events for everybody involved and affected.
