For a more serious take on 2013, we found ourselves with Obama Care at the helm, and met with turns, detours and road blocks while attempting to navigate this health care plan. While still under construction, they say that the site has made improvements, but for many the Obama Care plan is still hard to handle! Government shutdown was not handled well at all, for many paychecks were stopped, agencies were closed, the road was not traveled well. Sadly, some of the most visited sites were closed due to the shutdown, museums and zoos were affected as well! For many vacations plans were halted, while gates were closed! While it seemed to last too long, Government opened its doors again, and back in business we were!
Boston Marathon will never be the same again, for many it was a tragedy, for others it is a memory to meet again. Running may or may not be welcomed by some in the same way, while tragedy happened, lives were lost, but those lives will be honored with each pace runners take from that day forward.
