Welcome To The 120th Masterpiece Monday

This weeks MM is dedicated to the families and victims of the Boston Marathon.  I'm amazed by the enormously great job the police did in finding out who did this and capturing the remaining terrorist so fast. I would also like to acknowledge the medical and other people who helped the injured immediately following the bombing. I pray for the Lord's comfort to all who were affected by this very sad incident.
