The news is grim this morning. During the night, the two bombing suspects robbed a convenience store, set off more explosives, stole a car and held a hostage for a while, shot and killed one police office, and shot and critically wounded another officer. One of the suspects has been shot and killed, but the other one is still on the loose.
All public transportation to and from Boston has been shut down, colleges have been closed and school activities have been cancelled. Some people have been evacuated from their homes for safety reasons. A lot of Boston is shut down, and people are being asked to stay away. Residents are being told not to answer their doors unless they see a properly identified uniformed police officer.
The two terrorists are brothers from Russia, near Chechnya, who have been living in this country for a while, and attended Boston schools. A news alert has just been announced that all taxi cab service is shut down for the day, and the Federal Court House is closed. Another neighborhood in crime scene area is now being evacuated, and businesses in the area are being closed.
Gosh, when does it end? Where does all this hate come from? Why do some folks leave their homeland and come here to live and attend our schools, and then turn around and kill us? If they hate us so much, why don't they just stay where they came from?
There is really no way to turn this blog post into a cheery chat, so I will just post a photo of one of my daffodils and call it a day. If you haven't already been to Su's blog to pick up her two parts of the collab kit, please do stop by.
That's it for this morning. God bless us all, and let's hope that the other suspect is caught and taken into custody soon. Till tomorrow, Y'all be safe and have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
