I would like to express my deep sadness over the news of the events in Boston. My thoughts are with the citizens of Boston today and with everyone affected by this tragedy. Today, we are all Americans. I have no doubt that the individuals and/or organizations behind this attack will be discovered through careful investigation and brought to justice in accordance with the laws of our great nation.

I check the news every morning and this is how I found out about the horrifying event. I know many people who are currently in Boston or the Boston area. I hope all of you are safe. 

So, today, even as I am many miles away, my thoughts are with all of you.
