Sup Travellers?! I'm sure by now that everyone should know about what happened today in Boston. Today a couple of explosions went off at a Boston Marathon injuring as many as 68 people and killing up to 2 according to the latest report. I didn't write about here but I did write about it on my Facebook page, so you can check that out. It was a tragic take of events and my heart goes out to everyone who lost someone or had a loved one injured in it.


By now, it's only fair that the President of the United States speaks out about this horrific incident. And so he did. President Obama says the United States does not know "who did this or why" but vowed that whoever is responsible for the explosions at the Boston Marathon "will feel the full weight of justice." Obama made his remarks this evening from the White House about three hours after two explosions detonated near the finish line. "We will find out who did this and we will hold them accountable." The president said the government would increase security around the United States "as necessary" but did not say whether his administration thought the incident was part of a larger plot.

Obama has been in touch with federal law enforcement and Massachusetts officials in the aftermath of the explosions, and he promised that any federal resources they need will be provided. "The American people will say a prayer for Boston tonight," he said. Additionally, the president spoke with Republican and Democratic leaders on Capitol Hill, saying that "on days like this, there are no Republicans or Democrats, we are Americans united in our concern for our fellow citizens."

This is a very serious matter that must be dealt with swiftly. Many have claimed that the explosions were part of a terrorist attack. But I strongly believe that it was done by internal forces. I don't think that North Korea has the capability of doing such a thing. But that's just me. Anyway, my name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
