Mourning for Boston

Mourning for Boston

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.

    I am so with you on this one. The story broke whilst I was in the office and chilled us all. Our thoughts and prayers and with everyone.

    I love the photo you used for this post, kind of represents the mood really well.

    Such a sad time for everyone, if only we could make the world a safer place for our children to grow up in.

    It has been a sad week for so many. Causes one to reflect on the importance again of living every moment as if it’s your last.

    The grungy grain and cloud cover speaks volumes about this tragedy.
