The Boston Marathon has been an iconic event for decades, a lung-busting celebration of competition and independence on Patriots Day in Boston.
Today it became a bloody mess.
Two shrapnel-spewing bombs struck near the finish line, killing three people (one of them an 8-year-old boy) and injuring over a hundred, snuffing lives and severing limbs, shattering safety and savaging serenity.
Who spawned such horror? And why? If a cause was a motive, no cause is worthy of murdering and maiming strangers.
Whether the perpetrators are with a terrorist group or not, they now are terrorists.
Evil, after all, is not something you develop over breakfast. Like a tattoo, it’s etched into the flesh. And singed into the heart.
Ultimately, only God can deliver us from evil. But man can root out evil and burn it at the stake.
