Tragedy at the Boston Marathon

I cannot believe the news coming through even 10,000 feet in the air as I am on a flight... what mad human being is capable of creating such chaos and destruction at a sports event? These events are meant to celebrate human life & the great achievements human bodies are capable of when you set your  mind to it.
