I don't even know what to say about today. I'm rocked by this tragedy more so than Newtown (although that's not to say I wasn't bothered by Newtown) because I grew up in Boston. I was right in that area last month and the month before that.
There are so many conflicting reports coming in: was it a terrorist act? foreign or domestic? A single person or an organization? An isolated incident? If it was political, what were they trying to prove? At this point, no one can even seem to agree how many injuries and causalities there are. I don't even know what to think, except that this one hit way too close to home.
I've been able to get in touch with all my friends, thank goodness. But I'm still uneasy. I hope we get some answers, soon, and that they aren't the kind that send us into war. I'm not ready for the post 9-11 fear all over again.
I hope everyone is safe tonight and knows where their friends/family are.
