Lockdown in Watertown

Chances are, after today, you’ve heard of Watertown.  It’s currently the center of a media frenzy because the Marathon bombing suspect is on the run and most likely hiding out in Watertown.  Well, guess what?  I live in Watertown.  About one mile down the road, at my local Target and mall, there is a manhunt for a terrorist.

I woke up before my alarm this morning to texts messages asking me “Are you ok?” and “Where are you?”  I had no idea what they were talking about.  When I fell asleep around midnight, I had just heard reports that there was a shooting at MIT in Cambridge.  Apparently, the terrorists made their way to Watertown and had a terrible shooting exchange with the police, who must have been chasing them.  One terrorist down; one on the loose.

Listen, it’s scary.  We’re trapped in our homes with our doors and windows locked.  And I just keep waiting for the police to show up and search my home.

Please, please keep Boston in your prayers and if you’re non-religious, then just think of us fondly!
