Former Milwaukee resident urges people to pray for the victims

CREATED Apr. 20, 2013

BOSTON, Mass. - Despite the capture of suspect #2 and death of suspect #1, a former Milwaukee resident, now living in Boston, describes a city that's still very much in a state of shock.

Julie Veno Eidukonis says it's hard to believe such evil is in the world. She describes the marathon as a rite of passage in Boston and says just about everyone she knows has been affected in some way.

In her words, "It's such a shame that hateful people find the need to destroy such a happy event. After running all that distance you turn the corner and see that blue finish line and the crowds cheer and it is utter exhilaration."

Veno urges people not to forget and to continue to pray for the victims and their families.
