Boston Marathon Attack

Postby Turlough » Tue Apr 16, 2013 1:48 am

:cry: Why would anyone set off deadly explosions where people are running a marathon? People lost limbs in this disaster. An 8-year-old died.

Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts, was settled by East Anglians centuries ago and has a great many people of Irish descent. Clannad have been here in the past. Just tossing that out, for people who have heard of Boston.

I also heard about this from the news, and they said that some Finnish runners have been able to just narrowly escaped the worst. The thing what's happened really saddens me, and my heart goes out to everyone affected. I'm almost beyond words...

My Goodness, this is so sad. Yesterday I heard that the 8-year old boy's sister lost a leg and their mum had been also seriously hurt. :(
And this morning the next horrifying news from the States about the fertiliser plant. :shock:
