We Need to Follow a Heroic Example and Help the Victims of the Boston Bombing
No one can understand why would someone place a bomb during a traditional marathon, a tradition Boston has kept since 1897. It was a cowardly gesture that now requires a heroic effort to mend. There were over 22,500 runners who started the race. But some of them, instead of jubilant finish, ended up in the hospital for the wrong reasons.
The shock wave of the explosions was powerful enough to throw most of the people nearby on the ground, and powerful enough to leave many of the victims without legs and limbs. But the runners never stopped. Exhausted, they gave their last effort of endurance to try and help the other victims of the Boston bombing who were hurt. They knew that if they need to run another few miles to carry someone to the hospital, they would do that without a hesitation. They are a prime example of noble human beings, the example we should look up too, and follow, even if it took us one more marathon.
