Martin Richards

Martin Richards. Little martin Richards; lived a short life here on Earth. On Monday April the 15th of 2013 - Someone decided to cut his life short. It happened at the finished line of the Boston Marathon. little Martin was there with his Mom, watching his father run in the Marathon. he was running to go and congratulate his father, when a bomb exploded and took his life. Two other people also died in the blast and many,many more were injured. We all knew that it was a terrorist Attact. It took everyone by surprise, but people came together to help eachother out. Martin Richards was eight years old. He will always be remembered as a happy little boy and spreading his joy to everyone. Martin's parents now have an Angel in heaven that will forever watch over them....

    This is a very emotive and expressive work..It is so sad that this innocent child was killed in such a horrible way..Thanks for stopping by..No Cindy is not a pretty cat..She was one of three in a litter and no one wanted her so I kept her..She is the longest cat I have ever seen with the longest tail..She is not colored up pretty but she is sweet and a good cat..Sara
