Finishing the Race....

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." - Edmund Burke

An act like what happened in Boston yesterday is not just meant to stop an event. It is also designed to steal our spirits...our belief in each other and that good is ALWAYS stronger than evil. And I thought to myself, just a moment ago, I am not going to let that happen.

Then I thought, we should finish the race. For all the people who couldn't, we should finish the race. Tomorrow, I am going to run a mile. I hate to run. I'm out of shape and not good at it, but tomorrow I am going to do it because I just want whoever set off those bombs to know that they can't stop us from loving and doing the things we love. There are too many of us and we are more powerful than they will ever be. So tomorrow, I am going to run like I love it. I am going to run like someone with the courage, stamina and determination to enter the Boston Marathon. 
 If you want to, I invite you to run, walk, or strut with me. But whatever you do, let's send a message that we are good men and we will not do nothing.
