Today was a sad day. Two bombs exploded along the Boston Marathon killing 3 and injuring over a hundred. Many had to have their legs amputated, bringing the Iraq and Afghanistan wars to our door. I hoped that it would never happen but I have been waiting for Boston to be the target of terrorists. I have spend a lot of my time in the past decade in Boston and I have always had a feeling that Boston would eventually get bombed. Today I was not happy that my feeling would indeed be true. I feel a bit guilty that I have had these thoughts and feel terrible for those affected by this cowardly act, hurting the innocent and destroying lives. Even taking the life of an 8 year old boy.
I have always noticed that there is minimal police presence on Boston's streets. Though the Boston Marathon is a unique case, it is horrible to think that someone would actually do something to purposely hurt people. So maliciously and purposely at that. I can not explain why I knew rather a feeling since people in Boston tend to go about their business and not notice what others are doing around them. They are more focused on themselves. Perhaps this will be a wake up call to Bostonians and the country in general. We must protect ourselves from those that would hurt us.
I grew up (partially) in Germany in the 1980's on an air force base where terrorism was a constant threat. I have even flown back to the US a week after a bomb exploded in the Frankfurt airport killing 20. I am familiar with the reality of soldiers in full combat gear and automatic weapons at the ready. I have always had respect for them and even wanted to be one of them for much of my childhood. Being physically unfit, almost defective, I have elected to forever being a student, learning all I can about our world and our history. Even what we don't understand and embracing it.
I had an important meeting at school, close to where the bombing occurred and even though I didn't know the reason, I knew that my meeting on Tuesday (the day after) would be canceled and I didn't have to worry about it. I have known for days and the nights up unitl the bombing I had been sleeping horrible, as though something was wrong. How could I have had a feeling that the meeting would be canceled, even though it is an important part of my curriculum? Perhaps one day I will understand why I knew that Boston would be the victim of terrorists. I only wish that I could have predicted it (day/time) and stopped it. I have had this feeling for about 9 years now. Perhaps there is some work I can do to enlighten myself more. I have been feeling fairly unconnected with the universe lately. I was lucky not to be in Boston at the time of the bombings, yet I am numb to its reality, perhaps due to my experiences with terrorism when I was young.
I do not understand how to react to this, though we will go on, despite my premonition of the atrocity. Let's hope our future will be bright, filled with light and peace for all mankind. I will say that all day I have been seeing orbs out of the corner of my eye. I just saw one. Seems like there is something or someone looking out for me. Thank you. Please watch out for those affected by the bombings.
For me any type of premonition on the bombing wasn't very clear, yet my premonition of the Russian Meteoroid was right on. I was shocked by this one. I did go visit the site of the bombings once they opened Boylston Street since my school in only a few blocks a way. The visit was interesting, yet inconclusive.
