Was this an act of desperation or

a callous one…

one for notice, cause or name acclaim?

An Islamist or an Eco-terrorist…

all the same, out to kill and maim

the innocents, they care not

for them at all…

all for shock and awe, so Spartan,

from the Boston Marathon… the tiniest

victim, eight year old Martin,

Martin Richard will live on in

our hearts forever…

runners will remember him too,

Red Sox to the World Series with

Martin on our hearts, see it through.

I don’t care if it is done by one of a faith [not saying all of that faith, and here is seen a US reaction*] in a market in Tel Aviv or an abortion clinic in the US*(this site claims more affected*) or at a sporting event, as is the case here… the Boston Marathon, the use of bombs needs to stop. It is a faceless crime… an insolent act by one so hardened in heart to seek to harm innocents [and possibly some intended victims] in normal every day activities. It is the use of a weapon crafted in deceit [there is nothing noble to see from their use]… and clearly used by cowards.

If there was an urge to “crush” people who the bomber argued/debated with, it is an absolute truth extremists [when cornered and seeing no way other out] do things violating the tenets of their own religion [this applies equally to Christian zealots as well as Islamists]. If he was sure enough of his facts, in regard to Islam, why did he choose to take the cowards way out? Here is a little more of his story*and some of the deeper truths to this senseless act of violence… what did it prove? It is my humble opinion that extremism of any kind (and from any religion) is wrong if the intent was to kill innocent lives… something wrong if [even] done for the right reason. It is akin to fighting evil with evil… here evil wins. Please note the date this story broke and the time I wrote this [as originally posted], and please know where you find (*) one of these was placed here later.
