The people of Boston, MA and the attendees of the marathon are a people to emulate, and not because it was acting in a time of crisis, but because it was an act of grace and love and support and unity. They are a community of citizen superheroes that show us what we can be capable of when coming together. We can only be at our strongest if we act in this way during crisis, but also (and especially) regardless of crisis.
"In times of crisis, we come together and we help one another. Moments like these, terrible as they are, don't show our weakness, they show our strength." - District Attorney Daniel Conley (in a press conference following the bombings.)
Crisis can be our greatest teacher and not for the sake vengeance or hopelessness, but for a change in ourselves. Be absolutely everything you can be and rise to the moment.
Take care of one another, -Citizen Superhero
