Gretchen, I'm so sorry about your friends family and especially the loss of their son. I will keep them in my prayers.

Saturday, the world was watching Boston and the Red Sox, the memorial they had before the game was very touching!

I am sure you guys were able to see it but if not here is a link to it.

Gretchen, I can't imagine what that family is going through. Thanks for the info about the fund. If you get any more information on how the family is doing, please let us know. I have heard from friends and family and all are safe but heart broken and in shock.

I'm surprised that the Sox are playing tonight. I had heard it was postponed, but now I see they're playing the series in Cleveland. 7:05pm eastern.

Is there a link? That could be posted on Facebook and then I imagine people would realize it's legit.

Prayers to the Richard family.

There is a donation fund that is being set up for the Richard family. I'll post the info as soon as I know that it is true and not some internet jacka$$ trying to take advantage of generous people. These sites have already started popping up. Be careful and research who you are donating to!!!

The 8 year old boy who was brutally murdered by cowards was the son of my PhiPi Delta sister Denise O'Brien Richard from Bridgewater State College. She, her husband Bill (also from BSC) and their entire family were all together. Denise and their 6 year old daughter were both gravely injured and are still in the hospital. Bill had injuries and burns from the blast and shrapnel. Their oldest son was shielded from the blast.

I am not asking for sympathy. I ask that you all send your thoughts, hopes and strength to this family in such a horrible, unexplainable time.

My brother had been standing right near where the second explosion went off, but he left and went home about a half hour before. Take good care, friends.

It helps so much to see that good in people when things like this happen, Gretchen, that's for sure.

So, so heartbreaking.

I am incredibly thankful that my friends and family were unharmed. Being 3000 miles from home when things like this happen are difficult.
My sincere sympathies to all.

Among the horror and violence of today I saw also moments of pure good. Runners pulling off the route to go directly to hospitals to donate blood. Volunteers right alongside police and fire running towards the explosion, instead of away. People instantly got onto Facebook and other media with emergency info, missing people and found people reports.

Sending healing thoughts to my Boston.

I had just walked in the door and turned on the TV when the news broke in (I live in PA now). All and friends are safe but I keep crying for those that were injured or died. What is wrong with the world!!!!

I hope all of you and yours are unhurt and safe after the horrific explosions at the end of the Boston Marathon this afternoon.

Hugs all around.
