In the night the north star danced the moon looked on with more envy then I ever knew a rock could.
I can’t stop looking at the photo/video of a man who got his legs blown off. I want to know if he is okay. The death toll rose from two to three and I am just so afraid it was him. I can’t stop worrying about it. I would post the photo but i’m afraid it’s too graphic for some of my followers. I wish there was some way to know.
I just need to wait.
Thank goodness my Aunt and Uncle weren’t hurt during the race. I should count my lucky stars.
I hope he’s ok.
There is enough ugliness and hurt in the world without us inflicting it on each other. Love and prayers for Boston.
My thoughts are with my friends and family in Boston and with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
Patton Oswalt on Boston (via amyvdh)
Boston. Fucking horrible.
I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”
But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.
But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.
But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.
So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.”
I’m literally crying. I can’t believe that this happened in my state in the city where my family lives in the race that I have always dreamed of running like my family members. I found out because of Facebook that they are all okay.
What kills me about this is that so many people got lower body injuries. So many runners might never be able to run again. I can’t even imagine the amount of pain they are in now and will be in the future. I wish there was more I could do but going to the city right now would only not help anything.
I hope that this isn’t some minority extremists have set off the bombs in Boston I am so tired of racial segregation based on fear. :(
Starting to look at apartments with my boyfriend and our friends. This has been a dream of mine for a long time and it’s looking like it might finally happen :)
I’m so excited!
Any advice from apartment owners on how to know when your ready or just general tips.
