The Boston Marathon of 2013

Updated on April 14, 2014

Mayhem In The City Of Boston

yesterday I sat in front of my TV, watching thousands of people from different parts of the world participate in the Boston Marathon. Families and spectators stood-enjoying the day waiting for the runners to cross the line.

The day was a perfect day for the run with Lelisa Desisa, a 23 year old native of Ethiopia, winning the race in 2 hour 10minutes ans 22 seconds.Rita Jeptoo, a 32 year of mother of Kenyan won her race with ease, in 2 hours 26 minutes and 25 seconds. After they was declared winner, I wanted to watch the other runner cross the line.

At 2.50 I heard a boom with a whitest orange fog, a few seconds later another boom. I them heard people yelling and screaming and running away from the explosion. When the fog cleared I was in shock a, why others tried to help.. By now police cars, ambulances and fire trucks were on the seen, bodies was place on gurneys taken to near by hospitals. 140 people were hospitalized, 3 died, 17 in critical condition,25 in serious condition which includes 8 children..

I sat before my TV. all night listening to the news trying to understand why but couldn't.. It's a fact that the perpetrator wanted to make a statement, killing a lot of people The president of the United States .Who will take the blame for this terrorists act. A fifty thousand dollars reward has been offer to anyone with information about the Boston Marathon massacre.
