    That's true... Just believe in God and have trust in him, all these things happen for a reason:

    Me (frustrated): Why did you let so much stuff happen to me today?

    GOD: What do you mean?

    Me: Well I woke up late,

    GOD: Yes

    Me: My car took forever to start,

    GOD: Okay....

    Me (growling): At lunch, they made my sandwich wrong and I had to wait

    GOD: Hmmmm..

    Me: On the way home, my phone went dead, just as I picked up a call

    GOD: All right

    Me (loudly): And to top it all off, when I got home, I just wanted to soak my feet in my foot massager and relax, but it wouldn't work. Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

    GOD: Well let me see..... the death angel was at your bed this morning and I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.

    Me (humbled): Oh...

    GOD: I didn't let your car start because there was a drunk driver on your route that might have hit you if you were on the road

    Me (ashamed): ............

    GOD: The first person who made your sandwich today was sick and I didn't want you to catch what they have, I knew you couldn't afford to miss work

    Me (embarrassed): Oh.....

    GOD: Your phone went dead because the person that was calling was going to give a false witness about what you said on that call, I didn't even let you talk to them so you would be covered

    Me (softly): I see God

    GOD: Oh and that foot massager, it had a short ,,that was going to throw out all of the power in your house tonight. I didn't think you wanted to be in the dark.

    Me: I'm sorry God.

    GOD: Don't be sorry, just learn to trust me.........in all things, the good and the bad

    Me: I "WILL" trust you God

    GOD: And don't doubt that my plan for your day is always better than your plan

    Me: I won't God. And let me just tell you God, thank you for everything today.

    GOD: You're welcome child. It was just another day being your God and I love looking after my children.

    SN: Just remember that God make things happen for a reason, whether its good or bad. Take it as a blessing. -Danielle Dillard

    You lost me a bit there I have to say.

    Do you think I'm not hurt after looking at all those lives lost?
    I'm not saying that you're not. But focus on that rather than posting what you did, which in light of what is going, is rather pointless and unnecessary.

    Ignore it. Just someone's lame attempt to be "funny" and have a cheap dig at others who believe in a religion.

    How many injured now?
    I think its the same as before 2 killed and 23 injured. It was reported the scene was cleared by 3:30 local time.

    Obama is going to make a speech in a few mins. As sky news reported about 30mins ago "The president will make an announcement in approximately 18 minutes." The news coverage of this event has quite frankly been utterly embarrassing, CNN constantly saying bomb and attack while stating they don't know every 2 mins. Talking about North Korean rockets. Its just been completely lacking in professionalism.

    If a lion strode down broadway and mauled a guy eating an ice cream, would you declare it un-newsworthy because of how regularly it happens in kenya?
    Does that ever happen in Kenya?

    I agree with you though, of course it's newsworthy.

    I've heard that around 100 were treated in hospitals though.

    Oh right, well I didn't really get that impression of your post. But maybe the tone of it is unnecessary at this time.

    America did WTC. Both of the towers have been proven to had explosives in them. You can see from the footage yourself on Youtube w.e, the first tower had a sudden burst of smoke a fraction of a second before the plane hit. This was planned.

    And if that's not enough that this was all an inside job, look up tower 7. Another WTC building which apparently coincidentally collapsed on the same day, but no planes hit. This was hidden from the media.
    don't believe everything you see on those 10minute youtube conspiricy videos you complete tool.

    -> not a good time to exert your beliefs on other people
    -> using a tragic event like this to promote your religion is pathetic
    -> have some respect

    Summary of information on the Boston explosions

    • Two explosions originated from the Fairmont Hotel opposite the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Eyewitnesses report that the blasts at the finish line of the Boston Marathon were “100 times louder than thunder.”

    • A veteran of the army whom was present at the marathon confirms the scent of Gunpowder and Cordite, consistent with ingredients for a bomb. People believe the size of the bomb was relatively small in comparison to the types which can crater the ground.

    • Initial reports of 2 people dead, hundreds injured according to the Boston Globe. Some of the casualties have had limbs amputated.

    • A third explosion had been thought to have detonated at JFK Library (I've been there and it's huge), now reports that library officials are describing it as an electrical fire unrelated to the explosion. This is now confirmed by the Boston PD Police Commissioner.

    • Reports are that an explosive has been found in a shopping mall and at the Mandarin hotel which is near the scene of the marathon.

    • Boston PD EOD teams are searching all bags left behind to remove the possibility of a tertiary explosion.

    • A device has been defused and exploded in a controlled manner. Two more devices appear to be found by police and in the process of being defused.

    • NO arrests thus far by Boston PD.

    • President Obama has been informed of its occurrence, the Home Guard, FBI, Homeland Security, Boston PD and police forces from neighboring states are involved in the investigation of the event.

    • A no fly zone is in operation above the scene (and has recently been eased slightly), unlikely to cause disruption.

    • Cell phone services in Boston are now turned off to prevent the ability to remotely detonate any other explosives via Mobile Phone.

    • Extremely high security in operation in New York and Washington, massive mobilisation of Anti-Terror patrols at high-risk locations.

    • Boston City Centre is now in complete lockdown.

    • President Obama will shortly be issuing a statement.

    • Officials for the London Marathon and the Metropolitan confirm they are in talks to massively increase security for the London Marathon which will happen next weekend.

    Well clearly it is.



    My apologies, to be clearer this is not worthy of "front page international coverage". It is of course news worthy.

    For example, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world/ this story is basically the whole page for the entire world.
    Esentially the same story http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-22143503 is a mere half page and is hidden away in the Africa section.

    I see no reason for the over-emphasis on American news.

    To reiterate, my symathies to the wounded in America - but more so to the dead in Africa.
    Because the effect of events in Africa rarely reach outside of Africa, as opposed to the US. Why was 9/11 reported internationally, because US domestic events have far reaching consequences, far beyond US shores. I'm sorry but its painfully obvious why its worthy of international news moreso than the equivalent events in Africa.

    First it will be Muslims, then extreme left wingers/anarchists/activists, then extreme right wingers, then lastly a lone wolf.

    Why?

    Muslims - Almost every post 1990' plot or successful bomb attack carried out by this group.
    Extreme Left - Lead the lead table on terrorist attacks in the US
    Extreme Right - Its patriot day, Obama is perceived to be taking their guns, militia movements have increased by hundreds of percent.
    Long Wolf - So many recent examples.

    END

    Of course they are relevant! There wasn't even an appology for that strike!

    I'm not condoning the terrorists actions here, but I find these Drone strikes disgusting. And if this attack was created to draw attention to the children dying in Afghanistan which is certainly not common knowledge - it's sort of a quater justifiable. People have done worse to draw attention to humanitarian crimes before.

    And so you can understand the full extent of this, apparently 200 children alone have died from these type of strikes.
    Im sick of this political correct twaddle. NO actually killing innocent people would in no way "quarter justify" this, thats not the way you do it, dont make excuses for people. First of all we dont know WHO did this - it doesnt feel like Al-queda I think its far more likely another Timothy McVae actually.
