Yesterday’s terrorist attack at the Boston Marathon that wounded over 170 people and tragically took three lives including an eight-year old boy has rattled the nation and brought us back to the horrible memories of September 11th. However, as we saw in the aftermath of September 11th: Americans rallied and helped their fellow countrymen.
The American spirit did not waver in the city where our country was born. Bostonians helped one another yesterday through many ways. From the first responders and the marathon volunteers first on the scene, to the doctors and nurses who no doubt saved many lives, we are a strong and resolute nation because of the people who make up America. We got through September 11th and we will get through this horrible tragedy.
