As I watched the unfolding of events in Boston this past week, I have several thoughts on my mind. Two have been pre-eminent: I feel deeply for those who have suffered losses of life, and limb, which means those directly touched by the bombs’ effects.  I fear deeply for those who have suffered a loss of liberty, which is all the rest of us.
