Tragedy struck in Boston today. Is anyone really surprised? I'm not. I've been expecting more attacks ever since 9-11, and am amazed that something like this hasn't happened sooner.
I can remember sitting in Jim and Linda's MH back in 2001 and watching the planes fly into the Trade Center buildings. At that time, I thought, "This is just the beginning"!!!
These bombs in Boston were not very powerful. They weren't designed to kill, but rather to injure and install terror in the minds of the American public. And, if you talk to many Americans right now, the terrorist have succeeded!!!
If you don't believe me, ask your neighbor if they'd be willing to go to Boston this coming weekend. My guess is that they'd say, "Not on your life"!!!!
So, what do we do? Well, as far a security, we'll pretty much have to leave that up to the police and other government officials. But, we can go about our business with vigilance and not let these sick people get away with terrorizing us.
If we allow this to scare us into staying at home and not doing the things we want to do, the terrorist have won!!!
We can not let them win!!!!!!
Please send your thoughts and prayers to all that were injured or killed in Boston.
As Americans, "United we stand, divided we fall.
