Area runners react to the terror

April 15, 2013

Cumberland High School running Coach Tom Kenwood had believed Monday would be like any other Patriots Day when he took a bunch of his team members to Wellesley to watch runners in Boston Marathon pass by.
Patriots Day, after all, has always been a good day to visit Boston for a chance to see runners in the city’s historic Marathon and maybe to see the Red Sox play or take the kids to a museum.
But the explosion of bombs at the finish line for the marathon’s 117th running changed all that while leaving thousands on the marathon course and people in general wondering why.

UPDATE: Three dead, over 140 injured in Boston Marathon explosions

April 15, 2013

BOSTON — Two bombs exploded in the packed streets near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on Monday, killing three people — including a child — and injuring more than 130 in a bloody scene of shattered glass and severed limbs that raised alarms that terrorists might have struck again in the U.S.
A White House official speaking on condition of anonymity because the investigation was still unfolding said the attack was being treated as an act of terrorism.
President Barack Obama vowed that those responsible will "feel the full weight of justice."
