I am very sad about the bombs in Boston today. I don't understand how we can keep hurting innocent people, children, babies, for whatever cause. I feel for the families of the departed, wounded and those who will never feel safe again.. I don't know how we can tell our children about things like this. Hopefully young children will not see the videos which the networks replay over and over. I think needlessly. The images are embedded in our minds. I don't understand why they feel they need to 'tease' us into watching with their glitzy promos and spectacular titles- this is not something to advertise, but to treat as a tragedy, with dignity for those who are suffering and all of us who now have to explain to our children one more terrible act we as adults find impossible to understand. There are many good things that result from technology, but it has also forced us to look at the ugliest part of humanity almost instantly. I send my prayers to all that suffered today and pray that we have no more of these senseless and horrible events. I hope we find who did this cowardly act
