Boston Marathon Attacked by Bombings

A typically joyful day in Boston was marred by a terrorist bombing where two explosions killed multiple people, and injured at least 50 with injuries as serious as amputations.

It’s a grim reminder that peaceful life in North America is very much taken for granted, and our innocence will again be exploited by those who’ll seek to use this bombing as a means to remove more freedoms from the American people.

Reddit has more links than you’ll care to view. Following the attack on 9/11, I read everything I could, watched every video angle, probably searching for answers; Dreaming of a way to turn back time to prevent it. There will never be a way to undo things like this. We need to make sure that our societies don’t create people willing to commit these crimes against humanity.

  1. Words from Patton Oswalt:

    “Boston. Fucking horrible.

    I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”

    But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

    But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

    But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

    So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.” “

  2. Once again this tragedy will evoke even further persecution against Muslims and even evoke further racial profiling against Muslims. Everybody is so quick to assume that it is someone on the radical spectrum of the holy faith of Islam. I am sick about this incident but I am further sickened by the premature media reports suggesting that is it an Islamic terrorists attack. Islam is a religion of peace and a large majority of Muslims worldwide oppose violence, even when these Muslims are being persecuted in a supposed free nation like America. We must embrace the Muslim people in Canada and America and show them that we are compassionate and caring. But how can we do that when we torture a Muslim child accused of killing an America medic? How can we do that when we allow teenage boys to become disenfranchised to the point that they are accused of terror attacks in Algeria? How can we do that when we conduct illegal surveillance on 18 young Canadian Muslim men and accuse them of thinking about committing a crime then send them to prison for doing nothing of the such?

  3. I have to say that I find it refreshing to see a Canadian publicly recognize the fact that this event could be exploited by those who wish to take away even more freedoms to maintain control. It’s not that Canadians don’t; I just don’t see such a sentiment in print that often. You know us Canadians and Americans are all cousins anyway…

    Very interesting blog! It gives readers a window on life in your area.

    • Oh, we know: the people willing to use this crime to leverage further crimes against humanity – no need at all for these bombs to have been a “false flag” operation for that to happen! – are still around and still in position to make the attempts.
