Two Years Ago Today: The Boston Marathon Bombings

Two years ago today two bombs exploded near the finish line at the annual Boston Marathon. Horrifying photos immediately began circulating in the aftermath of the devastation, an act of terrorism which left three young people dead.* Those of us not present that day wondered how, in both our rage and anguish, such wanton violence could have happened at such a peaceful and family-friendly event.


Fast forward two years and one of the perpetrators will never harm anyone again and his brother faces the death penalty. But today should not be about the terrorists. It should be about those who have survived and who have shown remarkable courage after living through such a traumatic and life-changing experience. It should be about those who were exhausted after running 26.2 miles but ran to the nearest hospital to donate blood anyway. It should be about those who opened their homes and their lives to shaken spectators and runners. And above all, it should be about honoring the victims and remembering their families.
