Too sad to do much else other than run, the kiddos and I joined a local group, the Kankakee River Running Club for a Boston Run To Remember.
52 Adults and children participated.
Aby, Michael and I were content to just run and hang toward the back of the pack. The response from the community, the local businesses, and the cars passing by was overwhelming as people cheered, honked their horn and showed support in any way they were able.
We were happy to participate. We were happy to show our support. We were happy to do SOMETHING other than feel overwhelmed and powerless.
I’m still sad. I’m still overwhelmed. I’m still not going to “say” anything about the tragedy. However, I’m a runner. I run. That’s how I process things and this too will eventually be processed, even if impossible to ever understand.
