I don't know why, but I felt compelled to write a little something after the Boston Marathon bombings. It's just seven lines of text that I hope all of us Americans live by.  If you feel like you need a little strength to get by, please read on:



For our fellow Americans in Boston

We will not bow to terrorists, extremists or fanatics.

We will not run from terror or tragedy.

We will not deal in conspiracy theories or political agendas.

We will run to aid our friends and neighbors.

We will continue to live our lives to the fullest and without fear.

We will find those responsible and bring them to justice.

We are Americans and we will set an example for the world.
