My husband just called to tell me to turn on the TV - I'm still in shock about the explosions at the Boston Marathon. Finally spoke to my son & for those of you who don't know, he works for Liberty Mutual Insurance (corporate headquarters) & the explosions happened right where he works. Thankfully (can't praise Liberty enough), Liberty Insurance closed their offices today & my son stayed home. He lives across the river in Cambridge. He said Liberty closed down because of the marathon & it would be chaos with the crowds. My prayers and thoughts are with the victims. As a parent, I must admit, it's a scary feeling hearing about this knowing your child lives there. I'm sure thousands of parents who have students at nearby universities are dealing with the same feeling. Like elc, you want your child to live independently, build their career, live their lives even if it means thousands of miles away - until something like this happens. Then it's the feeling of why is your child so far away - we can't protect them 24/7, but as a parent, it's the one thing you want.
