Sports are supposed to be our pleasant distraction from real life woes and events, such as the Boston Marathon, are supposed to be a celebration of our ability to triumph as individuals, as communities, and as a world full of diverse people capable of coming together.

Today, some sort of evil decided to invade these great moments and attacked the great international event, and details are still being gathered about what happened and how we might be able to help.

In the meantime, we’re going to take a short break from our normal ongoings here at VT, and we encourage all of our readers to find a way to help those impacted by these events.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Boston, and the families around the world that are certainly worried about their loved ones in attendance today.
