Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims of the Boston Marathon attack.

Both April and I are deeply saddened by the events that occurred today in Boston at the annual marathon.

We express our deepest sympathies to all those affected and especially the parents of the 8-year-old child who lost his life in this cowardly attack.  As new parents, it has become exceptionally difficult to process the murder of a child.  It is just sickening.

I was going to add some links for donations or information on what WE as bloggers or readers can do to help but was disgusted to learn that fake accounts are being set up on twitter and other websites to capitalise on this horror.  Absolutely unbelievable!

So...I will simply hold my son close instead and hope that the bastards responsible are quickly caught...and punished to the absolute extreme.

My heart goes out to those affected by the attack.. I have no idea what kind of fun people derive out of hurting innocent people:(

I cannot tell you how hard it was to function yesterday. While I did not know anyone personally involved- after hearing about the little boy, it just struck me on a subconscious level, and like the Sandy Hook tragedy, I felt the fear begin to overwhelm in the helplessness protecting our children. But, today is a new day, I honor those who are suffering, and keep them in my heart- but I have to try to continue to hold onto hope that our children will be safe and live long, happy lives.

Brilliantly said Jessika. It hurts, but we have to keep moving and pray our children do not meet the same fate.
