Guys, if you can read this, thank God. If you have all your limbs and are uninjured, thank God. If your friends and loved ones are alive and well, thank God. In terrible moments like this, I can only bow my heart before God and pray for his mercy. We can only pray for God’s mercy on Boston and everyone visiting to run the Marathon. Not everyone who was at the race today made it out uninjured. May Father God bless those victims and heal them.
One of the things we must pray for is justice. The perpetrators of this violent act deserve death. The President addressed the nation and said we must find why they did this. No. I don’t care why. May their reasons die with them. There is no valid reason to carry our such an atrocity.
Out of deference for these victims of the crimes committed today, the video scheduled to drop will be postponed. The video explains what Patriots Day is about. Btw, the Minutemen had the Boston Massacre in mind when they mustered against the Red Coats. I hope that our nation’s leaders will not forget the victims today when they execute judgement against these pukes.
“The Lord examines the righteous,
but the wicked, those who love violence,
he hates with a passion.
On the wicked he will rain
fiery coals and burning sulfur;
a scorching wind will be their lot.” Psalm 11:5-6
Everyone in the country feels such a burden after witnessing the bloody scenes on Boston’s streets. Unlike watching similar scenarios broadcast from distant lands, seeing a terrorist bomb the city I know well and love very much hurts deeply. There’s Blood right there on the sidewalks of Boylston Street. Blood! It chills my blood to see it.
Thank God for Boston’s first responders! May they find any undetonated bombs, if there are any. Thank God for Boston’s hospitals. May God give them wisdom to mend the broken bodies.
May God bless you and comfort you, too.
“You, God, see the trouble of the afflicted;
you consider their grief and take it in hand.
The victims commit themselves to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
Break the arm of the wicked man;
call the evildoer to account for his wickedness
that would not otherwise be found out.” Psalm 10:14
With tears, Jimmy.
