freedumb…

it’s hard to find a different topic than the bombing that occurred at the Boston marathon earlier this week… all this snow and lack of shredding has me pretty focused on the attack…

i was staring at the tv with my buddy when the news dropped… Kobe Bryant’s season-ending Achilles’ tendon tear took a back seat to a bombing at a marathon… with smart phone videos and media coverage, i knew this thing would be well documented… i was impressed at how clear the streets were after the bombs went off…

the city was immediately put on lockdown… i honestly didn’t think the state of being in lockdown existed… what an insane situation, right?

after watching the video of the bomb going off (over and over), many different thoughts went through my mind… why bomb a marathon? why Boston? what were the unfinished participants supposed to do? all i could think of was the amount of confusion that erupted when those bombs went off…

it was supposed to be a day for achievement, pride, and patriotism in Boston… the bomb was more than a disruption of this celebratory day… it was a symbol of saying “fuck you, USA”… it was the equivalent of burning our flag at the finish line…

i believe many people got lucky… i am amazed more people didn’t die… i was also amazed at how the other bombs were located and diffused… it’s always good to see we know what we are doing once in awhile…

after everything settled down and in, all i could think of was “freedumb”… that word resonated within me because of how people take advantage of their fortune… it’s also dumb that jealousy inspires actions like this as well… freedom is not universal… appreciate it.

we are far from perfect in the USA… but attacking innocent citizens does nothing to progress our world… senseless violence separates us from each other… we are all on this earth together… be together.

peace and noLove…
