If you are following the news here in Boston, then you know one of the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects has been shot and killed (suspect #1) and suspect #2 is on the lam (turns out they are brothers from Russia). The city of Boston is on lock down. All forms of transportation have been closed. My employer has ordered all non-Boston-based employees to work from home.
This whole thing seems so surreal — I cannot even believe this is happening.
It really puts life into perspective, doesn’t it?
