You Hit Me Like A Bomb

This week has been one of those weeks that will probably not be soon forgotten here in the USA. With the bombing at the Boston Marathon to the fertilizer plant disaster in West, TX all of this has impacted so many.

The Boston Marathon attack really hit home. I don’t believe for a second that it had anything to do with the Marathon but rather a high profile event to attack innocent bystanders and make some sort of extremist statement.

My wife had run the Boston Marathon four years ago and to see that event being targeted for terror attacks is so overwhelming. To see the same sites where I once walked and watched from being attacked by two cowards is simply heartbreaking. In my time there, I absolutely loved Boston. It is a friendly, clean city and the Marathon is one of those events where the entire community gets out and supports it in amazing ways. It was one of those events that I was glad to be a spectator to and one that Carolyn loved to compete in. To have that event torn apart by such cowardly individuals is just plain evil. Image

Now the FBI has released some photos of some suspects that look to me like a couple of young guys who I would believe are domestic terrorists. So somebody knows who this guy is:

Suspect #2Suspect #2 Face

As I was walking the dog, I was listening to a  song on my IPhone by my favorite group, Third Day: Hit me like a Bomb. Not only were we hit like a bomb but we were hit by a bomb by evidently two cowards who chose to harm innocent individuals. It sure is a messed up world.

Sort of timely in the lyrics and “i cant say I never saw it coming, when you hit me like a bomb”.

You hit me like a bomb
And everything I’m used to
Is suddenly gone
Sorry to accuse you
Do you know what you’ve done
When you hit me like a bomb

Hear the sound of the sirens ringing
See the world of a life that’s changing
Well you hit me like a bomb
I was scared and I started running
Can’t say I never saw it coming
When you hit me like a bomb

(La la la la la la la la…)

You hit me like a bomb
Everything’s changing
It didn’t take long
For you to start rearranging
Everything that I’ve known
When you hit me like a bomb

Hear the sound of the sirens ringing
See the world of a life that’s changing
Well you hit me like a bomb
I was scared and I started running
Can’t say I never saw it coming
When you hit me like a bomb

(La la la la la la la la…)

You hit me like a bomb and I saw it coming
Hit me like a bomb and it’s all my fault
You hit me like a bomb and I saw it coming
Hit me like a bomb and it’s all my fault

Hear the sound of the sirens ringing
See the world of a life that’s changing
Well you hit me like a bomb
I was scared and I started running
Can’t say I never saw it coming
When you hit me like a bomb
