    Massive Explosions near finish line Boston Marathon

    Two massive explosions; dozens injured, people have lost limbs and some feared dead. Can't believe we are watching this on the news. Please say prayers.

    What is happening in this world? 117 years of marathons without issues and now this.
    God bless those hurt.

    My Stepson was almost finished running.... he was at the 25 mile mark.... Thank God he's ok and his wife... at the finish line is ok... no one has talked to her yet... but she's texting that she is ok.... My wife was on her way in town from an earlier position watching.... no way she could have been close based on the last time I talked to her... again, Thank God! ... this is too close to home. Prayers to everyone else.

    Thank God your family is safe. I have some friends who went in but they were not near the finish line. I've seen so many reports of injuries but some conflict. I've also heard a lot of sirens near my home and assume it's police back-up heading in town. Just pray there are no more explosions.

    And an explosion in Dorchester at the JFK Library that is being treated as related... you probably heard sirens responding to that.

    I just heard about the bomb at JFK library. Also all cell phone service has been shut down in Boston Mass General Hospital is in lock down. Think Brighams is in lock down as well. They also found two more devices that they are dismantling. It just keeps getting worse.

    My oldest son was volunteering at the finish line. He was directly across the street from the first blast. He wasn't injured except for ringing ears. Luckily he was instructed to move people out of the area so he didn't see the badly injured and dead people. What is this world coming to? Two weeks ago my younger son's college was locked down due to a possible gunman. It turned out to be unfounded but it was a scary few hours. You think your children are safe at school and work and because of crazy sick people in this world, no one is safe anywhere. I have had two scares in two weeks, but my boys are safe...my heart breaks for those who lost loved ones today and those who were injured. I hope they find the person or people responsible for this and throw the book at them.
