The GFP and our volunteers wish to extend our deepest condolences to the injured and the families of the victims, and our thoughts go to the first-responders, and to the people of Boston.

These types of acts are deplorable whoever commits them and there is an increasing list of those who will do harm to others for whatever cause they’re trying to get attention for.

It doesn’t matter who did this, because the damage is done. It won’t matter if it was a home-grown white-guy terrorist or a branch of Al-Qaeda.

Because you (the American people) will seek those responsible, you will seek men with blood on their hands no matter what colour or race those hands belong to.

Seek them far and wide. Find them. Then do what you need to.

Update: As everyone now knows two suspected bombers have been stopped.  One is dead, the other in custody.  Now it's up to the courts.

His sister and mother are critically injured. His message, "No more hurting people--Peace" is something we should all seek to honor, and remember him by.' (Thank you to the Richard Family for sharing)

So were we…

At least for a little while.

A recent change in the image files on the server, has, shall we say in technical terms, screwed things up.

Please bear with us while we wade our way through a gazillion images and synchronize the little buggers with their respective articles.

Our apologies for messing up.

We return you to your regular scheduled internet browsing.
