Certainly, we are all mourning for those affected by the bombings in Boston this evening. My brother-in-law reminded many today of others who are mourning:
As Christians, we are called to mourn with all who are mourning; as citizens of the US, we bear some responsibility for this bombing.
Let us all mourn together.
I learned later the next evening that this is an 11 year old story. So much for my source-checking librarian skills. However, the thought still stands. While I, with many others, wait impatiently to hear the resolution of today’s stand-off in Boston, I also want to be aware of many brothers and sisters around the world who have cause to mourn as well.
