    Explosions at finish line of Boston Marathon

    Dozens of people have been seriously injured after two reported explosions at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The Boston Globe cited witnesses who reported hearing two large explosions shortly before 3 p.m. ET. The Associated Press reported at least one of the explosions came near the entrance of the Fairmont Copley Hotel.

    Boston Police have confirmed two dead in at least one explosion at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. So far at least 23 have been injured.

    Please pray for the victims!

    So so sad.
    So close to happiness and the realization of a dream come true, then some idiot or idiots turn happiness into tragedy.
    I don't know how the perpetrators of this horrendous crime can be captured, but prayers for their capture.
    Just punishment...put them in a room, oh never mind.

    This is heartbreaking. Prayers to those that are injured and their families, to the families of those that won't be coming home tonight, to the emergency professionals as they fight to do their jobs, and to the entire city of Boston. May they feel God's presence.
    The people that did this are heartless. They knew that explosives would due more damage than opening fire. The fact that people that survived are now facing losing limbs due to this tragedy makes me sick. So many lives changed forever because of the actions of a few.

    Seeing all the news coverage today has made me unbelievably sad. I just can't believe so much has happened recently, and it's even worse that no change has come about because of it.

    I'm TRYING to keep the faith in people and believe that there's still good in our world, but it's nights like tonight that make it difficult.

    It just makes me angry nothing is being done, and we're helpless to stop it.

    I'm so sad and disgusted when I read this news. How could there be people so HEARTLESS in this world? I just can't understand. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by this.
