Does anyone remember my post about Richard Jewell? I wish that there had been someone like Richard Jewell there at the Boston Marathon, someone who might have suspected a bag lying about and thought to alert the authorities. (Please understand I am not blaming anyone! Such a tragedy and my heart goes out to all who are suffering from these bombings.) Richard Jewell spotted the bag underneath the bench in Atlanta at the 1996 Olympics and moved people away from it. Had he not done this I believe that more people would have died or been injured in Atlanta. (One woman died from her injuries from the bombing and a man died from a heart attack.) The story of how Richard Jewell was treated is a very sad one and one that he did not deserve. You may read my post from last year by clicking on this title post: Richard Jewell-Unsung Hero
I hope that the flowers are blooming wherever you are in the world. Sending flowers to you all, even if these are from last year!
Amaryllis from last April, very late blooming this year!
