There have been some explosions in Boston along the Marathon route. Many have been injured. Of your charity, please pray for the injured, their families and friends.

Just read about it.

Lord have mercy!
Do not be cast down over the struggle - the Lord loves a brave warrior. The Lord loves the soul that is valiant.

Do not gloat over me, my enemy!
    Though I have fallen, I will rise.
Though I sit in darkness,
    the Lord will be my light.

Lord have mercy!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Lord, have mercy!!!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Lord, have mercy.  I work at Berklee College of Music, and our office is about 3 blocks from the explosion site.  The campus spreads out to very near the actual site.  Lucky for us it was Patriots' Day and the college was closed.  Not sure if we're open tomorrow or not.  I was down near Copley Square a little before noon...thank God I was home when this happened.
