The attack at the Boston marathon has left everyone in a state of deep reflection as to the meaning of this new tragedy. “It is tragic” Boston mayor said to the press today “that’s all I have to say.”
In an attempt to come to terms with this senseless tragedy and let the healing process begin, we must understand that tragedies happen – tragically, and tragically there is little we can do about it.
As the number of possible perpetrators of tragedies, past present and future, grows, we must also come to terms with the fact that tragedies have always happened throughout the course of human history, they are happening now, and will also happen in the future.
That, is the sad and tragic truth.
