The Worst and the Best

In Boston this week we have seen unbelievable evil and heroic goodness. Terrorists invaded the innocent celebration of a marathon and did unspeakable damage to innocent people. Their heinous actions took human lives,mamed others and created fear and worry in a whole population. On the other hand we witnessed the most heroic behavior on the part of total strangers. Persons reacted immediately to aid the wounded and an entire city came together showing countless acts of charity. First responders and members of law enforcement thought little of their personal safety as they dedicated themselves to the care and protection of the community. We certainly saw evil this week, but we also experienced the basic goodness of the community and this will be the virtue that remains. There will be months and years of pain for all of the lives shattered by this evil episode, but in the end evil always loses.
