Plato said: “We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.” I wonder when we will find out whether these cowardly acts were politically motivated, or religiously motivated. Either way you slice it, this was an act of cowardice.
Like billions of people on Earth right now feeling devastated by seeing bombs explode in downtown Boston on April 17, 2013, I am filled with sorrow when I think of the almost 200 people injured and 3 confirmed dead that just went to see a race.
All they were guilty of was going to see a foot race. Martin Richard was 8 years old, Lu Lingzi was 23, and Krystle Campbell was 29 — and now they never get to have another summer, another hug from family, to taste a delicious meal, or feel feelings. All because they went to see a race.
I’m so sick of seeing cowards kill our family members and friends. Something in me doesn’t think these cowards deserve to sit in a prison cell on my money. I am sad in my heart today after watching another terrorist attack, this one just happened to be in Boston. I am also so proud to see how the people and first responders jumped right in there and helped their fallen compatriots, who were people they’d never met, when they were in need of help.
I’m so proud of you, Boston. That was definitely the right way to say F*CK YOU to the terrorist cowards.
