Q is for Quite a Week

It has been quite a week in present...and in the past.  Still on bed rest today (see yesterday's post for more info) I have been watching a lot of TV.  Today's coverage has been all on the manhunt for the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.  I am glad to be listening to the wrap up press conference of the day as I am writing this post.  The law enforcement officers have helped so much to bring this to an end, and the people of Boston are now safe today.

I am reminded this week of the anniversaries that are occurring this week...and I wish that the media would spend a second to remind people of this.  Those families are reliving their fears today--and I hope that none of them currently live in Boston!

April 15, 2013: Boston Marathon Bombing

April 16, 2007: Virginia Tech shooting

April 19, 1995: Oklahoma City Bombing

April 20, 1999: Columbine Shooting

It has been an interesting week in this country before...and now it is again in this interesting week in history.

I hope everything is ok with you. Good thing that they have the suspect in custody. Horrible things going on in our world.

Horrible that the young are committing these crimes.

I can't believe so many terrible things have happened in just a week. I'm glad they have the Boston suspects in custody.

I hadn't realized all those events were within a week's time, anniversary wise.

Definitely quite a week.

As a bed rest veteran, I feel for you. I didn't mention it in my post, but I was also a teacher before kids.
All this terror just paralyzes me. I'm from CO and remember watching Columbine unfold on live TV...horrid.

Interesting. April is the cruelest month... as a poet said.
Maybe something about the change in seasons stirs up deep feelings and urges, people act crazily?
