Tuesday memes | Boston . . .


kimklassencafe

 





There is no honor in terrorism.
There is no justification.
There is no righteousness,

only selfish arrogance.





Weak minds will always be weak
no matter how many insults, planes, bombs, or hatred they inflict upon others. 



 
and the strong will only get stronger.

. . . 

My thoughts and prayers go to those in Boston in the aftermath of yesterday's bombs.
My daughter, who volunteered for the marathon last year, chose instead to simply enjoy the runners as they proceeded through Wellesley and beyond the "scream tunnel" yesterday.
Wellesley College, ever vigilant and prompt to address parent concerns, notified us last evening that to their knowledge all students were okay and accounted for and had been encouraged to remain on campus.


But today,
despite this heinous act,
life will continue in America;
businesses will re-open,
students will return to class,
and we will continue ...

  5. Killing an eight year old child, or blowing off a bystander's legs will not make you a better person or your cause righteous.
    We may suffer, but you are the ones who have been humiliated by this display of inhumanity.

  6. Scary situation...so glad your daughter is okay. They don't call Bostonians patriots for nothing...they will stand up and get back to business and their lives. Cowards never win.

  12. I was thinking about you yesterday since I knew your daughter attended school in the Boston area. So glad she is safe. I know the Bostonians will grow stronger and more resolved after this awful event, but still there's no reason for such an act - like you've stated only selfish arrogance.

  15. We will continue on with our business and our families and our joy through tears of mourning because that simple act of continuing on is the very thing that takes our power back and prevents the evil person(s) who did this from having any lasting victory.

    I thought of your daughter yesterday and actually thought she might be watching the race. So glad she is safe and sound!

  19. I'm glad to hear your daughter is all right! Very scary indeed! I hope the authorities get to the bottom of this senseless act. And I also hope we learn to identify what causes terrorists to do the terrible things they do.

  20. I can only image how you were feeling yesterday but so glad she and the other students are OK. Such a senseless act of violence that leaves us all more determined to protect and hold close those dearest to us.....My heart just grieves for the families who lost or had someone injured in yet another horrible attack on our country...
