I agree... it's eerie and feels very surreal. I was with my friend earlier who I was with yesterday (we left the exact intersection of the 2nd explosion 20 minutes earlier) and she brought something up that we had discussed yesterday. We both realized that we had had this same conversation not even 30 hours ago and both said "it doesn't feel like that was yesterday." It was a conversation we were having as we were walking from the marathon to get lunch. 15 minutes or so later, everything happened. Feels like a lot of times has passed since yesterday.
I recently visited Boston for the first time, and was truly amazed at how hospitable and intelligent its people are. From the scholar/tour bus driver to the train commuters who put their newspaper down to engage with clueless tourists from Florida. I cannot imagine a nicest group of people to do something like this to. My heart is shuttered, and I only wish I had been there to help.
Praying for you, dear Boston.
Another big explosion this morning, this time in Prague.
Thinking and praying for all those involved, that the EMS, and ER services will cope and not be overwhelmed.
No matter how many times you do practice drills for a mass casualty incident, its always scary when you do it for real.
Hang on in there guys, we are thinking of you.
