I had planned to post my daily political thought today about a really interesting study out by (I think?) the Pew Forum, looking at whether people dread or feel positive about doing their taxes. But after today’s events in Boston, talking about anything else serious like that feels oddly out of place, even sacrilegious. And I don’t yet know what to say about those events.
So instead of deep or political thoughts, I offer silence. Not a moment of silence as in a memorial, but an acknowledgment that events like this are beyond my usual categories of thinking and communicating.
