Based on the various replays of the explosions, it looks like the bombs were located among the spectators behind the fences off to the right-hand side of Boylston Street, near the actual finish line. So the explosions were not aimed at the runners but the crowds.What is the point in taking out runners? Pure mindless evil. I am so sad and disheartened by this.
But if you want to discuss these motives, please keep that discussion in the other thread created on the topic, which is available only for members who opted in to view the other forum.Someone who wants to evoke fear and emotion for the furthering of personal, philosophical, religious, or political motives. That kind of sick bastard.
Boston. F*****g 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."
