    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 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.

    I am from the South....39 miles south of Boston.

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

    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!

    It is truly heartbreaking. I had to turn off the TV for awhile this afternoon. Just couldn't take all that heartbreak. Praying for everyone involved, and thankful for all the responders who step up when their own safety could be at risk.

    I'm sure this was planned, I heard there were ball bearings in the bombs. Seem they like to hit where they will be lots of injured people. I heard a couple lost their lives. So many sick minded people in our world. Don't know why there seems to be so many angry people.

    Not to keep this going but a reporter just asked a witness, "What did it feel like?" I so wanted them to say "It was just like a bomb went off". Can you tell I usually hate reporters and I really hate stupid reporters!!

    I just don't understand why people feel it's necessary to do this. Whether it's Islamic extremists or American extremists, why? Why hurt innocent people?

    Our prayers go out to all the people in Boston especially to the parents of the 8 yr. old boy. It reminds of 9/11 It was said the terrorists were on the run. I guess that means they are running to our country for pay back. God help us all. Heard this morning they are questioning a Saudi man. I wonder if any answers will come out of it.

    The boy who was killed and his sister, who lost a leg, go to the same school that my grandchildren go to. Last night our daughter called...very upset. This morning she had to tell her kids that one of their friends is dead, his sister lost a leg and the mother sustained brain damage. Lots of evil in the world....

    That is horrible. It makes it more real when it hits close to home. I think this family's story is the most heartbreaking.

    My friend Andrea ran the marathon yesterday, she just crossed the finish line at 2:47 pm and was approximately 100 yards when the first BOMB exploded at 2:49 pm. Thank God she's OK!! All her friends who ran with her are OK. We both live approximately thirty miles from Boston, she in Foxboro and I live in Mansfield. God Bless America!!

    That was so terrible it beyond words. I wonder though that those doing these type of attacks on innocent unarmed and unsuspecting people realize that we consider them the COWARDS of the world. also--- I better stop here.
