All you need is....

Last night watching the 6:30 news brought tears to my eyes.  People who jumped in to help those in need after the bombing at the  Boston Marathon.

That's what's it's suppose to be all about. Helping, being supported. It's what's remembered- compassion.

  Traditional Irish Blessing, just click on start to begin.


  1. What happened Monday was horrible beyond words. Since we live about 45 minutes from Boston, the news coverage has been nonstop....I finally had to turn the TV's all too much.

    There are so many stories of compassion and care coming out of this heart wrenching is always the way. In a time of crisis, we band together, help, support and care for each other.

    The Irish Blessing said it all beautifully. My prayers to all those affected by this terrible act.

  2. Carol, it must have hit a bit too close for you. It is so horrible how you just never know what is going to happen. They have such tight security for all the major events, but I guess if someone wants to do harm, they will find a way. I can't watch too much of the coverage either, most of it is just repeating the same thing. I want to know new information.

    Compassion and caring should be done everyday. If more people showed this, maybe there wouldn't be so much horror happening.....I can hope this would happen, can't I? Most people are very caring and will do anything to help. My prayers are with all of the people who were there since this will be forever in their mind. I am so sad for the ones who lost their lives...I pray their families will get through this, but it is a lifetime loss.

    I really love the Irish Blessing, and prayers to all.

  3. Monday's tragedy was horrible, and it makes people feel that much more vulnerable. It upsets me that those who commit such horrific acts of terrorism inflict fear in the lives of others. It's not right that anyone should live in fear and be left to wonder whether or not the next venue they attend will be safe.

    When a tragedy such as Boston or 911 occurs, it makes you realize how many good people there are out there who outnumber the bad. Most people are kind nd compassionate. I feel so bad for all the people who were in Boston that day. I can only imagine the shock and trauma that they experienced. As Myra stated, this will be forever in their minds. I especially feel so sad for the three who lost their lives and for those who lost limbs, not to mention the countless others who were injured. My prayers go out to all of them and their families.

    Thank you for the beautiful video of Ireland and the Irish blessing.
