our world is kind of awful
No. Our world is great. For every one person that plants a bomb, you have hundreds more running a marathon. For every one person that makes a joke about the dead and dying, you have thousands more donating blood, offering prayers, and volunteering their time. Things like this are the fault of single individuals who make violent, loud statements. We just have to make sure that the statements of the good are louder.
just saw this on Tumblr and thought I'd share it.

From my son's FB page yesterday. Who spent the 10 hours after the bombing accoutning for his companys +100 people participating in the Marathon and his GF's brother who finished at 4:01.
As someone who works in an industry that deals strictly with very bad things while spending most of my time thinking about things that go bump in the night - every single time something major happens I am reminded of how giving people can be and how the worst often brings out the best. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/spt--boston-marathon-explosions-attract-an-outpouring-of-help-from-city-s-residents-022321905.html
