 Reflecting on this Tragedy at the Boston Marathon in Boston, MA

My heart and prayers goes out to the injured and their families in Boston, MA. Hope the healing will start soon and the perpetrators are speedily caught, so justice could be served!

We are always so busy with our day to day lives that we seldom truly reflect, unless there is a Tragedy in our lives, such as a family member or a friend, or someone we know who had something tragic happen to them. Then again there are catastrophes around the country and around the world which make us pause and reflect.

As some of you know I lived about ten plus years in Boston, MA and ironically before Real Estate I was part of the Security for the Boston Marathon. This was before 9/11 nevertheless I can tell you from firsthand experience, even then Security was well planned and handled by a myriad of professionals. I know and feel the pain of not only the victims but those who were tasked with providing protection to all.

We as a society and as Americans need to take pause and consider that our innocence has been shattered with 9/11 and we need to be more vigilant and not complacant of our surroundings. If something does not look right or it looks like there is a concern we need to get involved. I am not suggesting acting as if we lived in a Communist Country or a Fascist Country, but with Freedom Comes Responsibility as well. If we see something out of the ordinary it is better to report it to the authorities than be tragically surprised.

As we see time after time, that in an instant our world can change. I ask everyone to look around and err on the side of caution and if you saw something I urge you to report it to the authorities not just in this instance but any other instance as well.
