It appears that the events in Boston last week were the sole act of two brothers and they were not part of a larger movement. A terrorist is someone who uses violence to intimidate others and the world needs to understand that the citizens of the United States will not be intimidated. We will learn from this event and become stronger because of it.
Last weekend was Thunder Over Louisville. The fireworks and air show annually draws one of the largest crowds for any event in the country.
This weekend is the Kentucky Derby Festival Marathon and Mini-marathon here in Kentuckiana. I have several friends, family and co-workers who are involved in this year’s event and I hope everyone involved has a safe race.
