Why?

20 Apr

Why?  That is my question for the week…

Why bomb the Boston Marathon?  I sat in shock watching the news coverage.  What should be a celebratory moment was destroyed in seconds…insane…three killed, including an eight year-old boy.  I have a five year-old daughter.  I can’t imagine.  My thoughts and prayers go to Boston and all who were affected by this senseless act of violence.

Why does my friend Amy have brain cancer?  My dear friend Amy just informed me she has it.  I am in shock.  She’s a spit-fire…an amazing woman who’s gone through so many challenges yet still shines.

I met her at a local gym and was instantly attracted to her positive attitude and energy.  At the time, I had no idea the amount of challenges she had faced.  Amy was always bubbly and full of life, never giving away what was really going on.

We had signed up for a 5k and a triathlon this summer.  I hope she’s still able to tackle those races with me.  If not, I will for her.

Well, it’s been quite a week.  However, despite all the sadness, I’m encouraged by our resilience and ability to stand together and support each other.  United we stand.
