Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the victims and families of the horrific terror attack at the Boston Marathon. And, we are thankful that a group of runners from Baton Rouge who took part in the race are all accounted for, safe and sound.
We are also grateful for the courage and selfless acts of first responders. Dozens and dozens of first responders who were there to treat fatigued runners quickly became mash units. First responders immediately rushed in toward danger after the first bomb blast to help those hurt. Their heroic efforts undoubtedly saved lives.
