Last night was chaotic and confusing in Massachusetts: One police officer was shot and killed near MIT; scores of law enforcement responded to gun shots, explosions? in Watertown, Mass. Media reported scattered details leading to uncertain conclusions. One detained man was ordered to remove all his clothing before he was put into the police car – in case he had strapped explosives to himself.
We send soldiers overseas when the war has arrived on our own soil.
So much to pray for in a country that feels like it is losing its sense of decency, safety and trust.
