There have been some lovely things said here on the internet about what has been happening in Boston. I particularly love what Patton Oswalt said:
I have never been to Boston, but I know some people that have and that are from there. I have never run more than a mile, but I have friends and relatives who have and do and good for them.
I just wanted to add my two cents about the whole thing.
I love what Mr. Oswalt said about humanity. There have been a lot of comments about those who ran towards the devastation to help. I sit in amazement and honour those people. I am reminded of how the country rallied together in unity after 9/11.
When Dewey was diagnosed with cancer, people came out of the woodwork and bent over backwards to help our family. So much so that I didn't know how to respond other than to be so, so very thankful. So much love and wonderfulness was poured out to our family. So much so that when it was all over and people weren't praying for us or offering to clean my house any more that there was a gaping hole of emptiness left over.
I just wanted to add to what has already been said by everyone else about the goodness of mankind. Yes, there is evil in this world. People make bad choices all the time and we are all effected by tragedy - some more so than others. I think the miracle that comes out of tragedies like this is the heroism and goodness that is shown by mankind to their fellow men.
Go human race!
