It's been an emotional couple days in Boston, and it showed in last night's Sabres game against Boston that regardless of where you come from, what you do and who you root for, tragedies like the Boston Marathon bring people in this country together.
I was out watching the Sabres/Bruins game Wednesday night. Did you see the pre-game ceremony? The National Anthem? To hear 18,000 people singing along to the most beautiful song ever written brought tears to my eyes, and from what I saw, many other grown men and women's eyes as well.
2:45 p.m. (EST): The Boston Police Department has announced that "there has not been an arrest in the Marathon attack." Investigations are ongoing.
2:35 p.m.: CNN is retracting their previous report that an arrest has been made in the Boston Marathon bombings. Other sources are reporting that officials are close to identifying a suspect after reviewing area surveillance video, but no arrests have been made.
12:45 p.m. (EST): FBI spokesman Paul Bresson has confirmed that the substance found in the letter to the president was ricin.
The Secret Service says that a letter containing a suspicious substance and addressed to President Obama was received on Tuesday at a White House mail facility. This comes just after a letter sent to Senator Roger Wicker (R.-Miss.) was found to contain the poison ricin.
Such a senseless tragedy in Boston on Monday, and you can only hope that investigators are able to figure out who planted the bombs and arrest the person or persons responsible. But in the meantime, let's offer a prayer for the victims who were killed or injured.
Three people were killed and more than 100 injured on Monday afternoon when two explosions went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Rescue organizations have gathered to help and at the the tragic scene, but how can you help?
