Yesterday I wrote about how amazing all of the men and women running the Boston Marathon are and how it is a dream of mine to one day be among them. Today, more than I ever, I stand by my words. The deadly attack that occurred yesterday afternoon at the finish line is mindless, devastating, tragic, and incomprehensible. Whoever could do something like this is without a doubt a psychopath and must be brought to justice. However, I do think it is important for us all to remind ourselves not to rush to any judgment, or assumptions, about who is possibly responsible for this attack. According to the Globe 90 countries are represented in the running of the marathon. This unfathomable act is one against the world, not just the city of Boston. We need to wait and learn all the facts before we place any blame.
Now, more than ever, we as Bostonians must come together and show the world just how strong we are and that we support every person affected by this horrific event. We are resilient and will ALWAYS stand together in tragedy. I am proud to call Boston my home and Boston will forever hold my heart.
