Boston Marathon: Not Again!


By Arelya J. Mitchell, Publisher/Editor-in-Chief

The Mid-South Tribune and the Black Information Highway

Not again. How many Ďnot againsí will Hate listen to?

Hate is a person who lives in a land called Rage. All Haters reside there, and they have this joy called pain which they donít mind inflicting on others for no reason, some reason or any reason.

On the morning of April 15, 2013 when Boston Marathon runners and spectators got up, they did not imagine Hate getting up at the same time. They did not imagine Hate walking among them looking innocent, knowing that he was about to ruin lives and yes, even take away the life of an eight-year-old boy who was denied even a decade to live as long as Hate has.

Hate didnít care, because Hate could only see rage as he set about destroying peace of mind. He couldnít stand the sight of people having a good time. He couldnít stand the sight of seeing strong arms and legs race to cross the finish line.

Hate didnít care that he could maim and kill, because Hate loves fear. And please donít think that Hate canít live with himself, because he can.

So, we say to you, Hate, the Boston Marathon will be run again and yet again. And still yet again.  Because, you see, Hate, in the Ďlong runí life is a marathon, and Hate never crosses the finish line.
