    Obviously, this appears planned - 10 seconds apart - across the street from each other. Long time ago I saw the finishes from there a few years.

    May whoever did this burn in hell.

    Thoughts and prayers to all effected, it is now being reported 3 dead... RIP.

    They will figure out who did this.. premature to make any judgements.

    Ditto. Sometimes these bastards time the second blast a minute later to get the first responders.....

    My sister, brother and my niece and nephew are in Boston today.

    I'm sick....and I'm tired of this. If it was proven to be foreigners....I do want revenge and justice.

    We can't allow our lives and our society to live in fear because of backwards cowards.

    I almost hope it was caused by domestic sources.

    Saw a report out of the AP that one of the devices was next to the VIP section.

    The VIPs at the race today were the Newtown families.......

    Make of it what you will...

    Sick of all of this.

    This is just so tragic. I hate listening and yet I am unable to stop.

    I'm beginning to think I've got PTSD because each time I hear or read that the injuries involved missing limbs I flash back to all the missing limbs I've seen and I am physically ill and mentally overwhelmed.

    God protect the medics, cops and firefighters who are there and God bless them and all of the runners and families there.

    I do not understand how anyone, no matter how fierce their ideology or how deep their own fears and hatreds run, can do something like this.

    Hatred should never be focused on the innocent - and all of the people there are innocents.

    Hopefully no one here is caught up in this or has loved ones who are affected. I know alot of you are from the area and my thoughts and prayers are with you all and I am hoping you and your loved ones are all safe and secure.

    I just tried to call my sister....no answer. But she and my brother weren't planning to attend the marathon. They took my brothers children in to see some things down by Boston Harbor. So I'm very optimistic....but still concerned.

    What is angering me is that I shouldn't have to worry about them like this....no one should.

    God help us all....there's nothing else to say.

    The fact that a bomb was found near the families of the Newtown tragedy is beyond sick....if it's a terrorist group, don't they realize this will only make things worse for them?

    Thanks IP....hopefully that's why I can't reach my sister.

    But when I think of my 7 year old nephew and 11 year old neice in Boston....I want to scream. They shouldn't have to be afraid like this.....

    For anyone who prayers, please pray.

    IMO it's not a matter of if ... it's always been when and where and how bad ... almost impossible to track possible terrorists especially when they go rogue and stay off the internet regarding their intentions.

    Explosion also at JFK library ... or maybe 2 explosions?

    Some think the 1st blast was near the VIP section and Newton families were there?

    If it was caused by domestic people I want revenge and justice also.

    Evil is evil.

    To me, Patriots Day and the Marathon is the greatest day of the year. On multiple levels, it is a day about the triumph of the human spirit. Today, a force of darkness tried to dim that.

    Even though I don't live there anymore, I love my city and I'm damn proud of it.
