The annual Boston Marathon is celebrated on the third Monday of April which is the Patriot’s Day in Massachusetts. The marathon is known to be the world’s oldest running annual marathon and according to Wikipedia, it ranks as one of the world’s best known road racing events and also one of the six World Marathon Majors.
News reports say that the race started with a 26 seconds of silence to honor the victims of the San Hook Elementary School shooting. Many are ecstatic to participate in the annual marathon including spectators themselves but the 117th edition of the mass participation Boston Marathon was marred by bomb explosions just several meters from the finish line. There were at least two explosions that happened only seconds apart which leaves three people dead and more than 150 wounded or injured.
The bombing in Boston Marathon which is usually a family event and gathering unexpectedly turns into a bloody scene of destruction as human flesh and bloods are scattered around the twin bomb explosions that eventually became a terror at the finish line. Reports said, at least 3 people were killed including an eight year old boy who is cheering for his father who joined the marathon. More to it that his younger sister was severely injured with leg injuries and his mother was treated with head injuries related to the explosions.
The Boston Marathon Bombings, I would say, is a senseless act of terrorism and cowardice as it involved the loss of life of an innocent child and several clueless children got injured. And no matter how big, how deep and serious that resentment may be, it is not just justifiable when you recklessly involve the life of the innocent little angels.

Another 365 days were gone and another one is about to come. Or should I say 364 days only?
Happy New Year everyone and don’t you all worry about the Fiscal Cliff deal, it has been signed already.
What I am worried about is the sad news of another senseless loss of life caused by a senseless way of celebrating the year of the water snake. I was watching the early evening news today when I heard the passing of the innocent child who was a victim of a stray bullet as everybody celebrates New Year’s Eve 2013.
It is indeed great to celebrate the New Year but it is very awful and ridiculously unreasonable if it is done at the expense of a parent and loved ones without their precious child. Indiscriminate or not but firing a gun at a blank target surely would result into something. Hopefully it won’t cease a lovely life, much to it if it is from an innocent angel who probably have so many dreams and desire to achieve something either for herself or for her family. But that we cannot know anymore as the little girl passed away with a bullet that enters her skull, passed through her brain and lodged on her cheek just behind her left eye.
According to medical reports, she was already comatose when she was brought in the hospital and suffered several cardiac arrests but survived until they reached the maximum threshold of resuscitating her before they call it.
Is this the way we suppose to celebrate New Year’s Eve?
