     As you may well know we had a ruff week here in the greater Boston area. There was bombing at the marathon Monday and today most of Bostons northern surounding towns and city are in total lock down looking for the second bomber, meaning no one leaves there homes. It was starting to get to me as that is all that's on radio and TV for days. After a few minutes here I feel a lot better. Just thanks for being here you all.

    I would be remiss if I didn't give a nod of thanks to those that have put their life on the line each day for us. With a special thanks to those that ran towards the blast Monday when everyone else ran way. 

    It was a senseless act of violance taking only innocent life and maiming others. Today in the presuit of the two responable we've lost one MIT Campus cop and another in critical condition.

    Please take a few minutes to remember those innocent taken and maimed. Then take some time and hold your loved ones close and be thankful.

    Be safe,

    Just hope the perp survives to give answers before he lawyers up. We do need to know where this plan came from and what else may lay ahead.

    Chaz, Glad that this is finally over for you guys for the most part and now you can get on with life and more imprtantly paying proper respect to those who were injured or lost their lives.

    Everyone one up there deserves a lot of gratitude for coming together during a tough time, especially those first responders and all the law enforcement agencies.

    Our prayers are with all of the victims and people in the area.

    Thankfully it is over for the most part now. There will be a moment of silences today (4/22) for those affected at 2:50 PM EDT. This will include most if not all of the media in Boston. If you have a chance just take a moment and be thankful.
