I know my theme for this week is Wildlife, and I have several more photos to share. But my heart is just not in it tonight. As a resident of new England, I just feel shattered: first the Newtown massacre, and now the bombing at the Boston Marathon. An eight year old killed–my granddude is eight. Even to imagine losing him is unbearable. People gathered for a festive day blown to bits…There just aren’t any words. So I offer this: I took this photo on Sunday when we stopped to visit and pay our respects at an obscure and mostly forgotten monument to a local man who lost his life when the USS Thresher went down 50 years ago this week. The weather was fittingly cold and bleak. I am feeling cold and bleak tonight. So much senseless loss.
