Patriot's Day Massacre
Pray for today's victims. As of this writing 2 dead, 23+ wounded.
In New England it is Patriot's Day* - a civil holiday. The city hosts the annual Boston Marathon on this day. It is also Tax Day in the United States. I'm guessing this is domestic terrorism - not Al Qaeda or foreign terrorism. Hopefully, I'm wrong.
*Prior to 1775, the area that is now the eastern part of the United States mainly consisted of British colonies controlled by the United Kingdom. The American Revolutionary War, also known as the American War of Independence, was a major step in the independence of the United States. The first battles in this war were fought in the areas of Lexington and Concord, near Boston, Massachusetts, on April 19, 1775. For this reason, the third Monday in April is symbolic for the emerging independence of the new country.
