Today during one of the most historic races in a America, two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon, in Boston, MA. causing more than 144 injuries and leaving 3 dead including spectators and racers. Preliminary witness reports hearing two separate explosions near the finish line of the marathon about 15 seconds apart form each other as many of the racers were preparing to finish the race. Emergency responders are on the seen attending to all who were injured. Right now FBI investigators and law enforcement officials are investigating to determine the cause of the explosions and they have not yet released a statement about the definite cause of the incident, and they have neither confirmed nor denied whether this was a planned bombing or unfortunate explosion due to some type of unforeseen infrastructure failure. Currently counter terrorism units are seen working with local and federal officials to help determine the cause of the incident as well. Vice President Joe Biden has released a statement stating ” That his office has just been made aware of the incidents and that the thoughts and prayers of himself and his office are with all of those effected and they are waiting on information about the cause of the explosions as well. My thoughts and prayers are with not only the city of Boston but also to the families of all of those who are effected. This is truly a confusing and perplexing turn of events and I am cannot wrap my mind round what could potentially be the motivation behind this incident and I will be keeping a close eye on events and actions not only surrounding this incident but events to come.
Today is truly another sad and tragic day in America. beloved Actor Michael Clarke Duncan was found dead just weeks he suffered a severe heart attack. Duncan was recovering in the hospital after his heart attack which happened two months, but had never fully recovered. His Fiance, Omorosa stated that both her and Duncan’s family have been extremely appreciative of all the prayers and well wishes that thousands of people were sending during this difficult time, and that this time should be used to remember Michael life and all those he touched rather that mourn his death. Duncan will surely be missed not only in Hollywood, but also in our thoughts and minds. His roles not only graced the screen with a larger than life presences, but his ever present smile and deeply unique voice will forever ring in our memories. Duncan was truly a giant amongst men by not only in physical stature but also in terms of a kind and giving heart. This man will truly be missed in this world and will never replaced. It’s quite to see another young positive black role model leave this earth so soon. R.I.P Michael Clarke Duncan….you will forever be missed.
