Boston Marathon Bombing HELP!

If you NEED HELP locating someone or you might have some HELP for the FBI, the links to HELP  you are included below.

Many are still in shock processing the senseless bombing of runners and spectators in the Boston Marathon, Monday, April 15, 2013.  Watching the video captures on TV and through social media brought back the sensations of 9-11 with the smoke and building front tumbling down at the initial exposure.

FIRST:  If you have photos or videos of the Boston Marathon you might want to view information on the Boston FBI website or call 1-800-CALL-FBI and share your information as you might have captured something on your cell phone or video camera that could be of HELP to the FBI.  

 As of 3:15 pm PDT 4-16-13 they are looking for someone carrying a black nylon bag that would contain the bombs.  The bombs might also have been in trash bags along the street.   MSNBC posted the photo below of what could possibly be a trash bag with the black nylon bomb bags inside.

The website says: “No detail is too small.”  Please let anyone you know that was at the Boston Marathon, how they can HELP!

The atmosphere at the finish line for the Boston Marathon 2013 evolved into a calm rush to HELP the injured as spectators and marathon participants ran back into the smoke to HELP those who were hurt as a result of the two bombs that exploded at the finish line of the Marathon.  It is inspiring to see how our country is coming together in times of crises and rushing INTO the heat of fire to help those in need.  A true example of heroism in the hearts of those in Boston at the Marathon.

It is almost beyond comprehension to understand the thought behind the actions that disrupted a celebration of this magnitude in Boston.  In trying to “connect the dots in this Cosmic Cow Pie™” it seems as we are getting continual messages of the need to reach out and Love our neighbors…..    We have so many horrific tragedies taking place in schools, movie theaters, political gatherings and now sporting events.  What is the message and what can we do to heal this negativity?  

On December 14, 2012, 20 children and 6 educators were shot at Sandy Hook elementary.  A group of parents and kids from Newtown, Connecticut were “guests of honor” at the Boston Marathon to honor the 26 lives lost in their elementary school.  They had completed the race prior to the bombing but were traumatized yet again as they came to “Run 26 miles for 26 lives.”  None were injured but the anxiety of the attack is taking it’s toll as they all try to heal.

“Now, the Newtown group will try to return the favor, by attempting to honor the fallen and injured from the Boston bombings with their own annual race, their local Sandy Hook 5k Run, Nowacki said.”

‘You know, they dedicated 26 miles to us. The least we can do is 3 miles for them,’ she said.”

The 26 mile Boston Marathon honored 26 lives lost in Newtown, Connecticut  and now the Newtown group will be hosting a marathon of 3 miles and as of now, there are 3 lives that have been lost in the bombings at the Boston Marathon.

Helping one another in all communities, all around the world is something  to ponder and then take action in the way you are directed.  You can HELP the world and your community with the love, compassion and the kindness you show to those in need.

If you know anyone that was at the Boston Marathon, please let them know how they can HELP by looking at their photos and contacting the FBI.

The Boston Marathon Bombing can HELP us come together.
