We New Yorkers normally don't root for Bostonians, but after yesterday's horrific events at the Boston Marathon, I think it's safe to say that we're all praying for Bean Town right now.
In what could have been another tragedy for the New York Rangers organization, Dylan McIlrath was in Boston to checkout the race...
Wow scary moment. Was walking towards Boston marathon finish line. 10mins away from where bomb went off— Dylan McIlrath (@dylan_mcilrath) April 15, 2013
McIlrath discussed the eerie scene with Pat Leonard at the Daily News.
...frightening. Crazy to think that if he left 10 minutes earlier his life could have been altered permanently.
...after dealing with the recent deaths of Cherepanov and Boogaard, another tragedy to the Rangers family would have been unfair.
Massachusetts native Brian Boyle had this message for all of us...
Remember what your knees are for.#pray4boston— Brian Boyle (@BriBrows22) April 15, 2013
...sadly, between all the shootings and terror attacks we're all too aware of what our knees are for.
"After all if this endeavor of ours to arrive at peace fails, we have our armaments to fall back upon. I want to reverse that position and say: Our armaments have failed already. Let us now be in search of something new; let us try the force of love and God which is truth. When we have got that, we shall want nothing else"
love and prayers to those in Boston...
John Giannone's wife and daughter were a block away from where the bombs went off. Safe and sound thankfully, but had to be a jarring experience for him.
@TheWrage My son was suppose to Visit me, leaving from Boston Amtrak right as the bombs were going off. Both his mom and I had a funny feeling and chose to cancel his trip. Thank you Mother/Father God for our intuition :)
