Words cannot describe the horror of these attacks on such innocent people, but this shows the determination of the American people to pull together in the midst of tragedy, despite political, ethnic, or religious affiliation.
I think two celebrity personalities put it best:
Stephen Colbert: “Nothing terrorists do is going to shake them…Boston was founded by pilgrims—a people so tough they had to buckle their goddamn hats on!”
Patton Oswalt: “I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem,” he said. “One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths. But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet.”
