Yesterday's senseless tragedy in Boston is weighing heavy on my mind this morning. Little eight-year old Martin Richard was cheering on his dad in the Boston Marathon when an explosion took his young life.
This photo of Martin is featured on CNN.com today. My daughter is Martin's age and she will be making her First Communion this Sunday. It appears that Martin was celebrating his First Communion in this photo, too. Martin's little sister is close in age to my son. She lost her leg in the explosion. Their mother had to have brain surgery.
Our prayers are with the Richard family and all of those impacted by this terrible event.
