Dear Editor:

The explosions at the Boston Marathon that caused death and injury to innocent people again prove that no matter how much security is out there, if someone really is intent on committing such a murderous and heinous crime, he will find away to do it.

Thepolice, firefighters and EMTs responded immediately to tend the injured and dead. They are to be commended for their very swift and overwhelming response to this senseless act of violence. Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the dead and injured, as well as those injured. It is indeed a sad day in this country when it is no longer safe to go to a movie theater, house of worship, shopping mall or event such as the Boston Marathon. The same goes for students and teachers to be in their classrooms learning and then to be senselessly slaughtered by a deranged gunman, as happened at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

What is happening to the value of life? It seems that there is no longer any respect for that, or for morals or decency, in this country. That is a sad testimony to how some in our society behave today.
