A Race Without a Finish

Grant Wells

Year after year, the Boston marathon is heralded as one of the great American sport events and attracts thousands of fans and participants. What was meant to bring out the best in competition turned into the worst of circumstances at such an event. Two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, acted in a violent and terroristic plot to plant a bomb near the finish line of the Boston marathon. A West student shared his opinion on the tragic incident: “I truly can’t believe an act like this would take place, it seems psychotic. If a charitable and friendly sporting event that I planned to run in one day isn’t considered safe anymore, than what is?”

With such a horrific event still on our minds a week and half later all we can do is pray for the victims and their families. “… A tragedy like this needs to be remembered and precautions need to be taken to prevent future attacks like this heading into the future. My heartfelt prayers and sympathy go out to the people of Boston.”
