I am not one to really get into tough topics, politics, and more touchy subjects, but this NYC Marathon just touched me a little too much.

As everyone knows, hurricane Sandy has destroyed states such as NY and NJ. Lives have been taken, homes destroyed, families in distress , no power, no food, and just complete sadness. This makes me very sad and my heart goes out to each and every person hurt by Sandy. I wish I could help every single person.
What am I getting to?
Well the marathon taking place in NYC on Sunday, yeah wasn’t too sure how I felt about it. I thought bad idea actually and I thought maybe they should postpone it a week. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect both sides here, I really do.
I just think in my big heart that maybe things would of been better if it was postponed. There are still people with no electricity, no food, no water,no home, and more.
My husband stated how he felt today while we were in the car, he is not happy and just feels it is wrong they are still having it. He heard lots of stuff on the radio today about it and how the runners would get water bottles throughout the race and yet there are people with no water. I guess the radio station he was listening to was pretty much hating on having it still too.
I know sometimes just going on with things to keep things normal and to maybe show some strength through such a horrible time is good, but I think this is just a time where it’s ok to not return to normalcy SO fast. There are tons of people still suffering and lives in hell, sometimes we just need to do what is best.
I just wanted to know how all of my readers felt in regards to this. I think it is a touchy subject but it is good to have freedom of speech and to get things off our chest.
As I said, I respect both sides here and I continue to send love and prayers to all those suffering <3
How do you feel about the NYC Marathon still going to be held on Sunday?
** I do wish everyone running a safe and good race and I ask that all of you run for the people who were all affected by the storm.
