Tuesday’s “Pictures in the News” begins in Boston, where two crude but deadly bombs ripped through crowds at the Boston Marathon on Monday, turning the finish line into a scene of chaos and carnage, killing three, injuring at least 140 and closing down parts of central Boston. Federal authorities said it was not known whether the devices were detonated remotely. Both bombs appeared to be unsophisticated and did not include plastic explosives, one federal official familiar with the investigation said. More photos

    In these gruesome times, when there always seems to be someone with an evil bent creating devastation for so many others, it was good to see the heros doing whatever was needed for the fallen. This is what we are, not the bomber. My prayers are added to the many who are sent up for strength, comfort, healing restoration, and justice for all of the people who were affected by this evil doer.
    We must never lower our vigilance.
