This is just terrible. Hopefully everyone will be okay.

Breaking News....One woman said she saw people with limbs blown off. I hope they catch who did this.

This could be any number of things. A maniac looking to hurt people (like Timothy McVeigh), a terrorist, a prank gone horribly wrong (though I doubt it).

Events such as these never cease to amaze me. What would cause someone to do something like this? You can only hope and pray that those affected will turn out to be alright. It's stuff like this that makes me uncomfortable being around large groups of people, it only takes one crazy person to ruin the lives of hundreds and even thousands.

2 confirmed dead already. The images I have seen are horrific. I wish the injured fast and full recoveries.

Here is another link. They found another unexploded bomb. People were trampling each other after the bombs went off. Which I can understand why people would be running scared.

Gee lucky they found that unexploded one. Last thing these people need was for a third to go off.

It's such a sick world sometimes...praying for Boston. An 8-year old child is one of the two dead, which just breaks my heart.

Can't help but wonder about when the bombs were placed.

For these huge road races, finish line stuff and stands are set up overnight and early A.M. ... is it possible, though unlikely, some devices were snuck into place during setup?

Horrible stuff, however it happened.

It could of been placed in there at any time or someone could of eaten and left it there somewhere. Could of had a timer on it or they set it off by cell phone and that's the reason they shut down the cell phone service.

I would like to know who did it? I hope they get some clues fast.
