It was a celebration, a marathon in Boston. Some were even running for a cause, everyone was eager for the race. Suddenly, two bombs exploded near the finish line and turned the festivity into a death scene. Three died and scores of people got severely injured.
The explosions created chaos. People were screaming, looking for their loved ones hoping to see them alive and unhurt. There was blood everywhere. People who were there and who read the news about the unfortunate event all over the world are shattered.
Many have posted their condolences and prayers for the victims of the bombings. We cannot ease the pain of the affected people but we can offer our prayers and support.
The following are some of the Twitter reactions expressing grief and offering prayers for the victims of the Boston Bombings:
