I’m usually not tremendously affected by the news.  I’ve been around for a while and I’ve seen a lot of images come across my screen.  But when I saw a photo today of a little 8 year old girl smiling bravely while standing on her new prosthetic leg, my eyes welled up when I realized it was Jane Richard, the little girl who had her leg blown off while attending the Boston Marathon about a year ago.

When I was reminded that this little angel also lost her little brother that day, I was completely overcome with emotion for her and her family.  I will not mention the name of the person responsible for committing the evil act that destroyed Jane’s childhood that day, and I will not even refer to him by any of the nicknames the media uses for him.
