Like everyone else, it was tough for me to watch the events in Boston on Monday. I had the day off from television, so I was at home viewing like everyone else. I have no extra language and adjectives to describe the incident. Others in the media have all the vocabulary-- the pictures to me speak for themselves. And I am not surprised either. It's a different world these days.
I hear media people express shock. Why? It's happened before and it's likely to happen again. It doesn't take an army to pull these stunts and incidents and tragedies off. That this one involved a sporting event only surprises me in that I would have thought sporting events would have been bigger targets over the years. And who knows if more won't become targets.
This one in Boston could be tough to solve. And if part of the motivation was to cause uncertainty at other events and extra security then it succeeded because people will now have to become more vigilant. And even then there are no guarantees.... it's a volatile world and will be for the remainder of my lifetime I truly believe.
