My Thoughts are with Boston By Stephanie Jankowski 16 Comments Terror. Heart break. An eight-year-old boy. Blood. Swelling anger. Crippling fear. Why. Hatred. Confusion. Love. Questions. Shaken faith. Prayers. Strength. Denial. Unity. Tears. Heroes.

The Sadder But Wiser Girl says
Your words. Our thoughts.
Mom Rants and Comfy Pants says
So senseless. So tragic. So unnecessary.
Really…..when does it end?
Janine Huldie says
Said perfectly. Thanks Stephanie!! 🙂
Dani Ryan says
Beautifully said, my friend.
This is so beautiful—made me teary-eyed. Stuff like this is just so hard to understand–and as mothers it hurts us even more to hear of the little boy who was killed. Too tragic to comprehend.
Chris Carter says
Thank you for putting into words the myriad of feelings we are all having.

The senseless randomness of the cruel act is what I can’t come to terms with. Who wakes up in the morning and says, “let’s kill some people today” for something to do. Do they think that somehow what they are doing is making the world a better place? Are they proud of their accomplishments? Do they think that what they are doing is “the right thing to do?” Can’t make sense of it.
Thanks, lady <3

Sad. I’m torn between desperately wanting to know more, and wanting to block it out completely.
I am feeling the EXACT same thing, Jill. I want to see pictures of people helping people, but then it makes me bawl my brains out and I just want to hide under my couch. Fuckers.
This post made me teary-eyed. I watched it on the news. Every time I see the videos of the people running towards the scene to help, I cry. HEROES will always outnumber villains. Good will always trump evil. They think they have caused us to be afraid instead they’ve made us more compassionate. Love really is all there is.
Please move to the US and be my BFF.

So hard to write about this topic with real meaning, but you have managed it.
Thanks so much, Vanessa. I appreciate your kind words because I basically threw my thoughts down and went about my business. Didn’t know how they would be received.
Thank you for reading!
