There has been a huge and immediate outpouring of grief and prayer from Bachelor Nation surrounding the bombings at the Boston Marathon finish line on April 15. Among those reacting to the incident is former Bachelor contestant Jaclyn Swartz, a native Bostonian.
Jaclyn was deeply affected by the event that struck her hometown on what is normally a joyous holiday in her hometown. Speaking exclusively with Wetpaint Entertainment, Jaclyn shares her thoughts on the tragedy.
“I may live in New York but I am a Bostonian at heart. I grew up there, and my family and friends still live there,” Jaclyn said. “It's so heartbreaking to see such events go down on what's supposed to be a celebratory Patriots Day.”
As of this writing, at least three people are dead and more than 130 others are injured, as bomb squads act to contain any more potential explosions in the area. “Sending my thoughts and prayers to all who are affected by this tragedy. XO,” Jaclyn concluded. We share in her sentiment.
