Boston Marathon Bombing. Just watch for those with agendas. HOW
A tradition over a century old.
Not only is the Boston Marathon an historic on going event, it is international. Not only is the Boston Marathon a healthy happy physical test, it is an example of striving for excellence. These runners are to be looked up too. There respective countries and nations and groups should be proud of these competitors.
An attack on this noble venture is not just an attack on America it is an attack on what is good in people.
No photos of bombing stuff here. No way, I cannot publicize it.
Lift them up in your heart
I will refrain from offering up a prayer for the injured and their loved ones. Because I do not want this to be about my religion. But as a person here on earth my heart will beat slowly for them. The horrendousness of the act needs no added hyperbole. Justice and retribution should be reserved straight forward to those whose job that is.
We should focus in on love and support for those affected and effected. We should each strive to replace the horrible with some act of good on our own. We do not need to join in the fray. We need to balance it out with good works of our own. A rededication to good works, smiling faces outstretched hands and hugs.
We need to retrain our knee jerk reactions.
I reactions should be along these lines. Call a loved one and tell them you love them. Give an extra buck to the beggar. Say an extra "have a good day". Waive at your neighbor. Let the car in the space before. Tell a teacher "thank you". We can balance out this world by filling it with more love.
If the "theys" lob a bomb on us we must begin to lob bombs back. Bombs of joy of love of kindness of understanding. Only this can stop the cycle. The chain of hate and anger must be broken by a strength of spirit and boldness of humanity.
Talking heads and politicians and masters of war need to be confronted with passion
We need to stand up tall and bend down low to spread a message of nonretaliation. We need to stop the madness one person at a time. We do not need threats of vengeance and a new spending campaign to stop the craziness. We need to let the politicians know that they are accountable to lead us to peace and not into more crazy wars or campaigns that make them look tough. We don't need to pledge more dollars or programs, we need to start looking in other peoples eyes and letting them know we care.
We do not need to be a proud people, we need to be a good people. We do not need to be a right people we need to be a caring people. We do not need to be winners we need to be helpers.
