I wanted to write something today about the terrible tragedy in Boston yesterday. I realized though that I don't have anything to say that hasn't already been said. It was a horrible day, spent worrying about loved ones who were in the area. I am very lucky that the people I knew who were there are all safe. Unfortunately that isn't the case for everyone. I am so very proud of the amazing people who sprang into action to help those in need. Seeing the responders and the everyday people who immediately ran towards the victims instead of away was absolutely amazing. Stories and stories of amazing deeds are what I am going to focus on. It may have been a terror attack, but to me, they failed. They showed me not terror, but how absolutely wonderful human beings can be.
Please don't spread rumors and hate about what happened yesterday. We still have no idea who was behind it. To make assumptions is to just to create a culture of fear and hate. That is the exact opposite of what we need. To put it simply, in the absence of credible information, who you assume is responsible says more about you than it does about anyone else. God bless Boston, and God bless America.
