    A complete shutdown the city for this situation was not necessary. Notice they didn't find the suspects during the "lock down." And I wonder how many of the citizens of Boston, locked in their homes with an armed killer on the loose, were considering maybe they should have a gun.

    The fact that so much preparation is in place to halt free travel should be enough for most to recognize their awful situation. They did forget to mention that the Boston temple was closed to "comply with the mandate".
    Perhaps it will take closing the churches to awaken most.

    Another thing to put on the to-do list when the mandate goes out to "Shelter in place", as it did for Boston: The Boston MA Temple was closed yesterday to be in compliance with the mandate.

    A suggestion for those running in the Salt Lake City Marathon, and to Supporters as well.

    9/11/2001: A similar drill was being run at the time.
    UK Subway Bombing: A similar drill was being run at the time.
    Sandy Hook School Shooting: A similar drill was being run at the time.
    Boston Marathon Bombing: A similar drill was being run at the time.

    May God bless all those affected in these tragic events.

    Suggestion: If you hear anything about a drill, Run! Run away! Run far far away!

    Have fun, and be safe.
