Today started off as a great day. Took the day off to watch my daughter run. Little did I know how frantic it would become. Decided to watch a little closer to the finish line than normal. Turned out I was very lucky and stood about 150 feet between the two bombs. Bomb went off to my left so started to run to the right and the second bomb went off. So many others near me are now fighting for their lives. Please say a prayer for those less fortunate. Fortunately, no injuries for anyone in my family and my daughter can finish her Boston marathon another year.
