This has been so scary. I had to work today, across the river in Cambridge. Everyone I know seems to be fine. I could have easily been down there if I wasn't working. They're saying the fire at the JFK library is unrelated. Thank goodness. I can see that from my house! I ended up staying in Cambridge for the afternoon at a friend's place. I didn't want to take the T home until we knew more. My boyfriend picked me up around 8.

I just want to know who did this and why. It's really shaken me up. I heard a horrible suggestion that it might have something to do with the last mile of the marathon being dedicated to the Connecticut school shooting victims, and some of the parents in the stands right where the first bomb went off. I mean, that has to be wild conspiracy theory and speculation, right?

100 or so injured on 2 dead, one of which was an 8 year old child, is what I've heard most recently.
