I WOULD LIKE TO START THIS BLOG BY EXTENDING OUR DEEPEST CONDOLENCES TO THOSE WHO DIED AND INJURED IN THIS TERRIBLE TERRORIST ATTACK AT THE 2013 BOSTON MARATHON.  THIS WAS A SENSELESS ACT OF VIOLENCE WHICH MAKES NO SENSE AT ALL AND HAS PUT A PERMANENT STAIN ON THIS ICONIC MARATHON.

DES MOINES PODIATRIST DR. KIRK NEUSTROM  WAS WORKING AT THE FINISH LINE MEDICAL TENT AS HE HAS DONE FOR THE LAST 19 YEARS WHEN HE HEARD 'A LOUD BOOM'.  HE STEPPED OUTSIDE A COUPLE OF SECONDS LATER.  PODIATRIST NUESTROM STATES, "I LOOKED DOWN THE STREET AND SAW A BIG PLUME AND THOUGHT 'HUH', I MEAN IT SOUNDED LIKE A CANNON AND I THOUGHT THAT WAS STRANGE, AND THEN ABOUT 10 TO 15 SECONDS LATER, WE SAW AND HEARD THE NEXT ONE AND I IMMEDIATELY KNEW IT WAS A BOMB."

PODIATRIST NEUSTROM STATES, "SO, I IMMEDIATELY HEADED TOWARDS WHERE THE BOMBS WENT OFF BECAUSE EVERYONE KNOWS IF YOU'VE GOT BOMBS GOING OFF, YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE PEOPLE NEEDING MEDICAL ATTENTION."  THE 53 TEAR OLD PODIATRIST, A NAVY VETERAN, HELPED WITH BASIC TRIAGE.  ONE OF THE FIRST VICTIMS HE ENCOUNTERED WAS BADLY WOUNDED.  "A GENTLEMAN WITH HIS LEGS BLOWN OFF BELOW THE KNEES.  HE HAD NO LEGS.  THAT WAS PROBABLY THE MOST GRUESOME THING THAT I SAW," STATED PODIATRIST NEUSTROM.  

IT IS HARD TO MAKE SENSE OF THIS ACT OF VIOLENCE AGAINST INNOCENT PEOPLE.  THAT IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO LIVE EACH DAY TO ITS FULLEST.  LIFE IS GOOD, BUT YOU ONLY GET SO MANY DAYS AND WE NEVER KNOW WHEN IT WILL END.
