A Day that was supposed to be for celebration in the City of Boston has turned to horror. Two bombs went off at the finish of the Boston Marathon causing injuries, lost limbs, and as of this report two were confirmed dead.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the people of Boston.
Shortly after the first bomb went off a member of the part of the Oregon contingent tweeted that they were all ok, in their hotel rooms and cell phone service was pretty much non existent.
Here is the link to the folks from Oregon who were in the Boston Marathon.

Many of those injured were spectators, families, and children. for those that don’t know today is known as Patriots Day in Boston, a day for celebration. It is a civic holiday and schools are closed.
