I've been sitting here for the last 20 minutes trying to figure out what to write.

I live in Somerville, which is just a few short miles from the Boston Marathon finish line. Less than 10 I believe, but not entirely sure. I was at work yesterday in Waltham when I heard the news. Yesterday afternoon into late last night I was in a state of shock because of the horrific events. My evening was spent frantically texting/facebook messaging and a few precious phone calls to friends and family all over the world checking on them, and letting them know I was OK. My mind was so full when I tried to go to bed, I only grabbed a couple hours of sleep.

The outpouring of love and concern was overwhelming and I am so thankful to everyone that checked in with me. I'm still incredibly saddened by what happened, and I pray for not only the victims and their families but for our law enforcement, fire fighters, paramedics, EMT's, nurses, doctors, first responders, volunteers, and so on.

Today I'm still incredibly emotional as most people are- and still in a state of shock. Work has been a struggle today, but I'm glad I'm here surrounded by people.

My mom- the reason why I'm in healthcare today has been a nurse at two different Boston hospitals, and currently works at one of the 4 major ones. She's been there for the last 15+ years, and prior to that she was at Mass General Hospital for 20 years. Yes, my mom has been a nurse for almost 40 years which is astounding to me.

My roommate of the last year and a half, who is like an older brother to be is a Somerville Police Officer.

I'm thankful for what they do everyday, but even more so yesterday.

I had to come on here to say something, and although it may not make a ton of sense, I'm glad I did.

Please keep Boston in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, and thank you to all for your support for our incredible city.

Much Love,
