The fact lives were lost and many were injured is sad. The fact someone or a group of individuals committed this crime against us is frightening. But this act of evil is not enough to hurt or destroy the spirit of the citizens of Boston…and the citizens of this country. It speaks volumes that many people ran TOWARDS the blasts rather than away from them. An act of anger, designed to create fear, lost the battle against courage. Fearless…heroic…charitable…that’s the spirit of Boston.
Pray for the people of Boston and all of us. The blast affects more than those who were injured or killed. It affects all of the people they were connected to. And ultimately, we are all connected. We will survive this…we are survivors.
Thou shalt not not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day. Psalms 91
Tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom…not a guide by which to live. Robert Kennedy
