One year ago April 15, a joyous event became a tragedy. The Boston Marathon Bombing changed many lives forever.
I have family in Boston, several who were on their way to cheer the runners across the finish line when they heard the blasts. I thank God my loved ones weren't injured. My heart goes out to all who suffered loss of life and limb.
I pray that this year's marathon will be safe, happy, and triumphant for all runners, victims, and those who crossed life's finish line and will watch from the other side.
