From sea to shining sea, Americans stood by Boston and those injured in the Boston Marathon Bombings on Monday night. The attack brought back instant memories of the September 11th terror attacks of 2001.
America is a much different place than it was 12 years ago. Today as the events in Boston unfolded, people turned to social media to not only find out what was happening, but to give their opinion as to what was going on.
“Terrible, but the world needs to expect terrorist acts, during world events, and national events, Satan’s working hard now a days!” wrote Janette Smith on the KXLY4 News Facebook fan page.
“Oh my goodness there’s so much blood. How horrid.” wrote Dawn Blasberg.
The images on television and streaming across the internet did indeed show a lot of blood on the street and sidewalks. The images were unlike anything we’ve seen in recent years. The images of hate and anger came at America in record speed.
“IF this is a terrorist attack, how could someone be SO heartless as to do something like this to innocent people!” wrote Bowtie Bob Fryer on the KXLY Facebook page.
