After the tragic explosion at the Boston Marathon Monday (April 15), celebrities all over are expressing their condolences about the attack. Ellen DeGeneres had this to say during her taping for Tuesday’s show:

Before we end the show today, I wanna tell everyone in Boston that we’re thinking about you. We’re watching the news and it is incredibly sad.
As we’re taping, we’re still learning new details. And, please know
that you’re in our hearts. Be kind to one another. Bye.

Comedian Patton Oswalt also had a wonderful Facebook message, talking about the people you see in situations like this running towards the tragedy to try to help, and “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson adds in his opening monologue tonight, “I’m appalled by this thing and when I watch it on these streets that I know, it’s horrifying.”
