Remembering Boston

With the finish line coming into sight
Lives were changed by a flash of light
Hatred buried in a tormented heart
Ripped innocence and purity apart

At the end of a race ran so well
A challenge’s quest turned in to hell
Devices created to kill and maim
Achieved their ends on those not to blame

With chaos and confusion in the street
The heroes rallied and did not retreat
With fear and destruction as the terrorist’s goal
They will never thwart our compassionate soul

Tears were shed throughout the world
As caring eyes watched the scene unfurl
But in the end there was no terrorist gain
As “United Forever” is our vowed refrain

I pray for those who paid a hardy price
I hope thoughts and prayers someday suffice
Your unfortunate loss will be remembered by all
As justice upon the responsible fall

    Joe, I'm having second thoughts about writing about this horrible atrocity. Anything I could write will pale in comparison to your post. I will undoubtedly try, though, so give me some slack in your comments..... Love ya Bro..... Jake
