By now, you’ve certainly heard a lot about the Boston marathon bombing and the subsequent horror that followed — so far, three people have been confirmed dead and more than 170 have been injured.
It’s hard to comprehend this kind of act of violence. However, many of the images and reports coming out directly after the explosions have been wonderfully positive: between long lists of people offering their homes as shelter to any who needed it, runners and spectators alike running toward, not away, from the blast area and those who needed help, and many other amazing acts of heroism, the stories of which will continue to come out in the upcoming days.
