All of us were horrified by the Boston Marathon Bombings, but there was little that we could do here to shed any new light on the situation. The coverage has been wall-to-wall, major news agencies have gotten stories completely wrong, and others have predictably used the situation to push their preconceived agendas.
None of it will do anything to fill-in the holes in people’s hearts, placed there by villains’ bombs. None of it will help a loved one, a city, or a country, heal.
The video below, however, shows the true spirit of our country at its very best. Biased as I am towards hockey folk, I’m not surprised that this happened at the first Bruins game since the attack. However, I’ve been watching/rooting for the B’s since I was hardly taller than a pair of skates, and I’ve never seen anything quite like this before.
God Bless Boston, and our nation.
