Boston Marathon Shakes Us Up

Right now I feel secure in my condo which is only, like 10 miles, from the White House, but in a different state.  Pennsylvania Avenue has been blocked.  Security heightened around WH.  Picture of President Obama on the telephone, with an aide by his side.  I am glad I am not in Boston, however.  Where I am, security consciousness is high and we don’t like disasters.  I am NOT interested in driving into DC right now so I can go on a tour of the White House.  That is really low on my list of priorities.  I do, however, want to know the meaning of this attack and the heightened anxiety it has produced.  I’m gonna sit tight, nice and snug in my closet-sized apartment, and hunker down here.

The question is:  Has America been attacked?
