I WOULD LIKE TO START THIS BLOG BY EXTENDING OUR SINCERE CONDOLENCES TO THE DEAD AND INJURED IN THIS SENSELESS ACT OF VIOLENCE THAT OCCURRED AT THE 2013 BOSTON MARATHON.  ONE OF THE WORLD'S PREMIER ICONIC RUNNING EVENTS NOW IS PERMANENTLY STAINED BY THIS UNFORTUNATE TERRORIST ACT.

PA PODIATRIST, DR. HOWARD PALAMARCHUK HAS TAKEN HIS TEMPLE UNIVERSITY OF PODIATRIC MEDICINE STUDENTS TO THE BOSTON MARATHON FOR THE LAST 17 YEARS.  PODIATRIST PALAMARCHUK STATES JUST A FEW HOURS  AFTER THE DEADLY EXPLOSIONS, "THIS IS A FIELD TRIP FOR THEM, KIND OF A GRADUATION TRIP TO COME UP AND TAKE CARE OF THE RUNNERS.  USUALLY WE TAKE CARE OF PROBLEMS: ANKLE PROBLEMS, BLISTER CONTROL.  THAT'S ABOUT AS BAD AS IT EVER GETS.  UNTIL TODAY."

 

"AND SUDDENLY, THERE WERE JUST TWO -- ONE LARGE EXPLOSION FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER.  YOU COULD FEEL THE CONCUSSION OF IT.  AND THEN IT SMELLED LIKE GUNPOWDER.  THEN, ALL OF A SUDDEN, THE MEDICAL TENT BECAME A MASS CASUALTY TENT."  ALTHOUGH NO ONE EXPECTED TO GO FROM BLISTER PATROL TO TRIAGE, PODIATRIST PALAMARCHUK SAID HE WAS PROUD OF HIS STUDENTS.  "EVERYONE TREATED.  IT'S JUST QUICK, GRAB WHATEVER YOU CAN.  THEY REACTED QUICKLY AND TOOK THE LEAD OF THE MEDICAL DOCTORS.  IT WAS A GOOD EFFORT.  I WAS PROUD OF THEM."

IT NEVER CEASES TO AMAZE ME HOW WELL HUMANS REACT TO DISASTERS WHEN CALLED UPON.
