Thoughts Following the Boston Marathon Bombing Ordeal

News coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing

This has indisputably been one of the wildest weeks in recent memory. In the afternoon of Monday, April 15 two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing 3 and injuring over 180 people. In the days that followed a whirlwind of events transpired that reads like an episode of 24, culminating in the killing of one suspect and the apprehension of another. Now that the ordeal is over and the long, arduous process of investigation and prosecution really kicks off, it’s amazing to think back on how this whole thing was wrapped up.
