Ocracoke at times seems like a world away from the rest of society. However, we islanders are shocked, saddened, and angered when horrific things happen to our fellow citizens anywhere. Our thoughts go out to the victims and families of everyone killed and injured in the senseless attack on innocent men, women and children at the Boston Marathon. At times like this we often feel helpless, but we can at least hope for justice, healing, and comfort for everyone affected, and for our country and our world. May we one day learn to live in peace, and may that day be not long in coming...for us, our children, and our grandchildren.
