We can't begin to express to you how much we adore Amy Poehler, so it breaks our heart to see her so visibly upset like this!
But the normally very jovial Parks & Recreation comedienne is a both a Boston area native and graduated from Boston College, so it should come as no surprise that the heartwrenching drama surrounding the Boston Marathon bombing and the subsequent, incredibly violent 24 manhunt for the suspects would have a deeply profound affect on her.
Sadly, this is very clear in the latest "Ask Amy" video she posted on her "Smart Girls" YouTube channel this week.
While many runners didn't get to finish the Boston Marathon yesterday due to the heinous explosions that were planted, students from Boston College have put together the Boston Marathon: The Last 5 for everyone who wants to complete the race that was stopped by bombs.
The Last 5 marathon is scheduled for this Friday at 4:30 PM and is inviting anyone who was affected by the bombing to take part in the five-mile walk from Boston College to Copley Square.
