During my years of cross-country and track from middle school to high school, I relished in the joy of coming across the finish line after completing a difficult race. Every runner knows that joy. The finish line of a race is a symbol of freedom. It is a symbol of overcoming! It is a symbol of having endured and conquered the task that was set before us! Unfortunately. today, in Boston at the Boston Marathon, it became a state of chaos and destruction as two bombs killed at least 3 and injured 140 others. Right now, it hurts and all we can do is pray. We pray for Boston and those effected by the explosions, who did not get to finish the race with joy and gratitude, but instead were met with the hate and disdain of terrorism. We pray for the healing of those who were injured. We pray for justice for those responsible for this display of hatred! We pray for comfort for all those involved and their family members! We pray that this situation will unify the nation and its people and not divide! We pray for answers! Amen.

Heb 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us

    It’s a disgrace that anyone would try to spoil such a joyous moment
