Commentary: Boston Marathon Tragedy

I'm left feeling helpless hearing about the two explosions near the finish line of the Boston marathon hours ago. Grateful the toll is not worse, I've always known that each life and livelihood impacts countless others.

Again I'm reminded of the role poetry can play, not to repeat the questions we hear from all corners, but to express inimitably, on behalf of those who can't, how today's events affect victims, responders, and witnesses.
