    Just saw it on the news. Several people hurt and now at hospitals in the city. They said there were 2 explosions and they are not sure if they were intentional or not. The bomb squad is on the scene trying to figure it all out. Thank God most of the runners had already came through. I live in Mass. and this is a big day that draws huge crowds to the city.

    I just read that. people. box cutters, etc. I do so wish they would take stock of their lives and do good with them.

    I was born and raised just 48 miles south of Boston. This feels like it has happened to neighbors. It could very well be that some people I know are there. It brings tears to my eyes to think that the human mind would plan something like this at a sporting event.

    This is so sad! It's a special day in Boston and terrorists, whether foreign or domestic, ruin people's lives!

    Another sad day in our Country. We need to join together and pray for all those injured and their families. The fear must be so traumatic

    This is so horrible. So sad for everyone, especially the Newtown families that were at the 26 mile marker.

    Please pray for my city. I work a block way from the explosion. This is a great city, a lot of young people with colleges on just about every corner. This is tragic, my husband is a marathon runner, has run the marathon 14 times. Not this year. We know so many people who just go out and cheer the runners on. Its usually such a fun day.

    Monstookie, Boston is one of my favorite cities to visit. There is so much history and the people are very nice there. Prayers to all in your city, those who were killed or hurt, and those who witnessed the horror!
