Terror in Boston: Photos of “Good and Evil”
Posted by Larry Doyle on April 27, 2013 6:32 AM |
The photos to which I link in this post are truly graphic in nature. I offer this note of precaution as some may find them too disturbing.
On September 11, 2001 I was working in midtown Manhattan. I will never forget the unease and anxiety that ran throughout the city that day and for months to come. The evil displayed by those who attacked our nation that day was truly horrific yet it brought out the best in us as so many reached out to help our fellow citizens.
We witnessed the same in Boston on Monday April 15th and in the days since.
Will we ever learn all of what went into the planning of those who brought such devastation to the streets of Boston that day? Who knows, but that said, I think it is important that the power of evil is broadly shared so that we may know just how destructive it is. I also think it is even more important that the power of good is even more broadly shared so that we may know just how powerful it is.
To these ends, I share today links to photos that crossed my desk this week. I caution readers that the photos are graphic and disturbing. When I first viewed them, I saw the evil amidst the mayhem on Boylston Street in Boston.
I have since viewed them again and I see the goodness of those who literally took the shirts off their backs to help their fellow man. I thank all those who helped our fellow citizens that day and in the days since. We can and will win this fight, but let us always be on guard so that no citizen and no family might ever have to bear the burden of those impacted by evil in Boston on 4/15.
Love this country. B Strong!!
