That bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon yesterday is bothering me like it is most Americans. The reasons are obvious. But there is another thing that concerns me … why have so many of these actions happened in the month of April?
The Virginia Tech massacre: April 16, 2007
Columbine high school mass murders: April 20, 1999
Oklahoma City government office building bombing: April 19, 1995
The end of a 50-day siege at a cult compound near Waco: April 19, 1993
The assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr: April 4, 1968
And now a still-unexplained bombing of innocent people cheering on their loved ones at the end of a marathon, held each year on Patriot’s Day, a Boston holiday celebrating the beginning of the American Revolution.
