Once again our hearts break with news of this latest terror.
Obviously all such acts of atrocity are hideous where-ever they occur.
But there is something particularly poignant about the thought of the hurt children who were there to watch their parents compete. Or the athletes maimed. Mostly I’m aware of the iconic status of the Boston Marathon via doing this post last year. It such a vicious and low-minded attempt to fuq with the very symbology of freedom, strength, endurance, healthy competition and any-age vitality epitomized by such events. Not to mention the very birthplace of modern America.
I can’t remember where i read this but it was advice on how to talk to kids about such things and one of the tips was to focus on the helpers. That there are always good people running to help, to give blood, to save.
Astrologically, it would be great if Venus in Taurus was all there was going on but, as i have been banging on about, we’re heading into Eclipse Season, the Sun is on Mars in Aries and of course, the Zap Zone is gathering force again. Volatile times.
This horrible event makes me think of the Remembrance Day semaphore message: “War turns us to stone. In remembrance we shine and rise to new days”
