With the country still reeling from the terror attack at Monday’s Boston Marathon, during which two explosions left three people dead and more than 170 injured, another, an even deadlier tragedy has taken place in the form of an explosion at a fertilizer plant near Waco, Texas, on Wednesday night. Reports estimate that as many as 15 people could be dead, and more than 160 have been injured, including many residents of a nearby nursing home.
By Thursday, many celebrities – including some Texas natives – took to Twitter to express their condolences again during a bad week that’s gotten that much worse.

Of course, plenty of non-Texans shared thoughts and prayers too.

But it was movie critic Richard Roeper who may have summed up everyone’s feeling’s about this week best:
