April 15, 2013 was a very hard date for me and my family. As many people know that is the date when an awful attack happened at the Boston marathon. I was in Aruba at that time but a close family friend was running in the race. We had first heard about it an hour after it happened when I went to go to the bathroom and past by a TV. The headlines said "Boston Marathon bombing". Sprinting back to my parents I told them about what happened. My moms best friends sister had gotten hurt. She had both of her legs blown off. When I heard this is I was in shock. This was somebody that I cared about. Knowing from there on that life for her would never be the same. My mom in tears all I could think about was how my mom would get through this. This is something that I will never forget about.
