It seems like a world away in light of the tragic bombings that went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday. Bostonians, the nation and world have you in our thoughts and prayers as no one in their right minds could ever believe that an act like this was deserved or warranted. I truly hope that those responsible are caught, brought to justice and suffer in the same manor as those hurt or who died that day. As our nation mourns this event I'm certain we will become even more resilient than ever. Bostonians, you will prevail and heal however the memory will never be forgotten. Patriot’s Day will continue to show those who wish to attack our country and citizens as the day they will never take from us, ever.
