In An Instant

The kids had been home from school for less than half an hour. The TV hadn’t been turned on since the morning. It had been a calm, quiet, uneventful day.

Vic’s alarm clock went off.

The TV was turned on.

And, it all changed.

There was an attack at the Boston Marathon at about 2:50 this afternoon. Two bombs went off. People were maimed. People were killed.

There has been an explosion at the JFK Library.

I have a horrible, sinking feeling in my gut. I remember this feeling. I felt it on the day Newtown occurred and I felt it the day the twin towers fell.

    Oh, Kristin. I know exactly what you mean. I have felt heartsick since I heard.
