My Comment: ‘God is With Us’
Out of the horror of the Boston marathon bombings, there emerged uplifting examples of human kindness as the city’s residents did all they could to help those caught up in the attack.
One of the most shared messages on Twitter was a quote from American television host and Presbyterian minister Fred Rogers: “Look for the helpers. You’ll always find people who are helping.”
And it proved to be true.
So many of the runners continued to run across the finishing line and onwards to the Massachusetts General Hospital, in a rush to give blood, that they had to be turned away.
“Due to the generosity of our donors we don’t need blood at this time,” wrote the Red Cross for Eastern Massachusetts on Twitter.
