We try to keep things light here on COED but I didn’t want to end the day without addressing on some level what happened in Boston today. It’s way too early to talk about terrorism or anything else that national media would have you believe, because frankly, there is very little “real information.” All we know is that there are casualties, lots of awful photos, and even more theories as to what happened.

But this isn’t an attempt to add fuel to any of that fire. Instead, I’d like to draw attention to this Google Person Finder for people worries about loved ones in Boston. The idea is simple and straightforward but has the potential to save people a lot of grief. Please note, however, that Google is not fact checking any of the submitted content.

Our hearts go out to the victims and families of this tragic event.
