“How do you defeat terrorism? Don’t be terrorized.” ― Salman Rushdie
My condolences to the families of Martin Richard only 8 years old, Lingzi Lu a Boston University graduate student from China, Krystle Campbell age 29 and Officer Sean Collier. I cannot imagine the pain you must feel, to have lost your loved ones in such an absolutely senseless way. These are the pictures of terrorism:
Officer Sean Collier
To those that were injured in the attack I hope for a speedy recovery. I pray that you can overcome the trauma that was so cruelly inflicted upon you.
I congratulate all the members of law enforcement who worked together to bring these thugs to justice. I applaud all the people who put their own lives on the line and jumped in to help the injured. I thank all of you who called in leads, provided pictures and videos to law enforcement agencies. You performed a valuable public service. David Henneberry, the man who’s boat was shot up during the apprehension of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, I sincerely do hope that you get a new boat.
I have been sitting in front of the TV following this story and am just absolutely stunned. My dream is to qualify for and run the Boston Marathon. Never before has an act of terrorism hit me that close. It has been suggested to me by some well meaning loved ones that I should give up on running the Boston Marathon. But I feel, to put the dream aside and say I cannot do this now, would be to let the terrorists win.
What are your thoughts about the terrorist attack?
