Run One For Me by Pilot-Obvious Run One For Me by Pilot-Obvious

My tribute to the tragedy at the Boston Marathon. Three lives were lost, and that's three too many. Not to mention the countless injuries. It breaks my heart.

And as a runner myself, it just seemed to break my heart even more. Sports unites people worldwide, and running is no exception. I've made numerous friends because of running, and we always cheer each other on and support one another, even if we've never met.... I feel like runners seem to have a special connection. Maybe it's just me, though.

Sorry for the long absence.

Run for Boston.

I like how this is so simple, and yet worth a thousand words. This is gorgeous, the detail of the strings making a heart is also very sweet. Great job ❤
I'm such an airhead though, when that tragedy happened, I've stayed for like 3 days hearing about the Boston marathon tragedy yet I had no idea what happened there, but when I did, it made me speechless. Can't even think of how people must've felt witnessing such a thing :(

I found out about the bombing after I got home from school that day, and I just didn't know what to say for a while. As a fellow runner, I feel as if the Boston Marathon is an affirmation of human life and ability, and for those three people who died and the countless people who were injured, I just can't imagine how it is to just have everything taken away so suddenly. No belief, no matter how strong, should warrant the taking of lives. Thank you for this.

Impressive artwork and R.I.P. runners from Boston. I was really shocked when the news aired the tragedy. All the deaths were unnecessairy.

I was as well. Such a shame. Of course, all bombings are horrible. :(
