Hawaii residents who were in Boston for the marathon are coming home, shaken by the tragedy that unfolded around them.
Talking about Monday's event is not easy. For runner Angela Kwong, the gravity of what she witness is only now sinking in.
Kwong arrived at Honolulu International Airport still wearing her Boston Marathon jacket.
She crossed the finish line less than 20 minutes before the first blast went off. That's when she heard the loud explosions one after another and knew something was wrong.
The day before she had been standing in the same spot where one bomb was detonated -- cheering on runners in the 5K race.
"Tell your loved ones you love them. Don't wait to the last minute. Nothing happened to me, but I can't stop thinking of that little boy," Kwong said.
Kwong says the bombing won't keep her from running. It will actually push her to qualify again for the Boston Marathon next year in memory of those killed
More of Kwong's fellow Hawaii runners will be arriving back home on Wednesday.
It's the holiday season and that means parties, fun and for some, drinking. However, police are on the lookout for drunk drivers. One family offered a reminder on Sunday, why it's important to not drink and drive.
