Suttons Bay man on Boston bombings: 'I'll never forget today'

(Continued)

This attack was inexcusable. Simple as that. I can't say I really care about who was responsible or not. I just know that two families just lost a parent, child, or sibling, and hundreds more will never be the same again. I've never really understood how disgusting using tragedies as propaganda was until now.

Compared to so many others, I was barely affected. But I'll never forget today. And yet I just heard about bombings in Iraq killing dozens more. It's so easy to shrug things like that off if you've never experienced it yourself, but it's hard to take war lightly after days like today. Peace and love be with you all.
