They just reported that a three year old was critically injured and transferred to Children's Hospital. The President is going to speak right after six o'clock.

I've been watching the live CBS news feed online. So horrible. So many innocent people affected one way or another. I pray it doesn't get worse than it already is.

Addie, and anyone else here who knows someone there, I pray that all your family, friends, etc. come home safe.

I hope they can attach a group or person to this. It is good that they found some bombs that hadn't gone off yet.

Can you imagine if the bomb under the grandstand went off (it didn't and was discovered and destroyed) and the families of the Newtown victims were injured or killed?

You can bet that from here on in, I will never be anywhere there is a crowd. I hope the injured person that is of interest at BWH is the one.

A despicable and cowardly act to target innocent people gathered to celebrate a wonderful event. Addie, I understand your feelings and share them about staying away from crowded places. We have to be mindful though. If we allow ourselves to be frighted of engaging in the world and keep us hiding in our homes, they have won. =0(

I wish you all could get the news from one of our local stations. Our local stations are WBZ, WCVB, and WHDH. I think if you google anyone of these station, you can get the streaming reports directly. CNN is so off the truth. What they don't know, they are making up.

There will be a lot of extra people in my prayers tonight. I'm glad you two are safe. This is heartbreaking.

Does Andy M. Live in Boston or somewhere else in Massachusetts? Is everybody accounted for on DC?

I live in a suburb well outside the city. We're well and have been watching the news. The train of thought that leads to bombings is so foreign to me. I cannot comprehend how anyone feels they benefit from this.

Our thoughts are with the victims and at the same time we are relieved the other bombs were disabled.
