Bombings At The Boston Marathon.
At least three people were killed and 144 wounded, with 17 in critical condition and 25 in serious condition. An eight-year-old was among the three killed and eight other children were among those hospitalized, according to CNN. Other reports indicated that several wounded had lost limbs because of the attack, a bitter irony considering the day's event.
So far, there are no suspects, although the peanut gallery is already hard at work assigning blame for this tragedy. I'd rather not and I wish others wouldn't. Let's just try to help those who need it most in this trying time.
