P.S.:
As we can read at the atlantic wire / boston-bomb-news 6-liter pressure cookers, hidden in black duffel bags, filled with nails and ball bearings, have been the tool. Of whom? As president Obama said: “…by a terrorist organization, foreign or domestic, – or was the act of a malevolent individual…”

  4. It’s heartbreaking, isn’t it, that so much evil exists and can turn a perfectly, well intentioned event into a tragedy. So very, very sad. Blessings, Robyn

  6. I hope there is truly a face and a name to this perpetrator. I hope the FBI and all the law enforcement do the right thing with this.

  8. I would agree with another comment, that this is much worse than idiocy. This is a man or men who have no respect for the lives of other human beings.

    • you know what you are talking about, dear Shimon in Jerusalem, so many acts of “no respect for the lives of other human beings” made by terrorism since decades. And before? Of course as a German I can’t forget that an elected government killed millions motivated by an absurd ideology…

  10. My wife works about five blocks from where those bombs went off, she heard the blast from inside her office. It was very chaotic in Boston throughout the day. There were also a lot of stories of good people helping others too, such as people letting runners stay in their homes since some of the hotels in the area were evacuated.

    Sometimes it takes time, but good wins over evil.

  13. Very sad day in Boston for all who were killed and injured. I am pleased that they have narrowed it down to 2 suspects and that one has been taken off the streets by being killed already. This is a tragedy for all.

      • Yes, indeed, Firzz. Seeing the police officers was unnerving as we both know the stresss and danger that happens every minute they are out there keeping citizens safe while trying to capture a criminal. I wish we could all get along and love each other everywhere. Peace ….
