9. Agreed -

I found myself checking DU first for updates. Smart, intelligent updates. Both of my daughters go to college in the Boston area, so it was a very nerve wracking week for us.

You guys may not agree with me, but as a mom, I am sad for the young man who was captured the other night. He's 19 and he followed his older brother down an evil path. How many of you are little brothers who would follow your big brother to the gates of Hell? But in many ways he's still just a boy. 19 year olds don't have all of their judgement capacity developed. I know he did a terrible, terrible thing. So many innocent lives were lost or tragically altered on Monday afternoon and I am extremely angry about the horror of the bombings. I just wish that bright, misguided young man had made a different choice.
