Sport has and always will be a venue for the good in humanity. All the ingredients, including adversity, pain, triumph, sacrifice, and emotion, seem to always put on a wonderful display of humanity. It’s only natural for evil beings in this world to attack something so pure in this way. It’s the antithesis of evil.
The problem for these evil doers, however, is that they don’t realize sport, and those who participate in it, is quite possibly the strongest point in our community. There is no chink in the armor of the competitor community.
You, too, are a part of this larger community of athletes. Your ideals, on some level, speak to those of athletes of all kinds around the world. And after today, one thing is certain.. we will have an opportunity to display what we do best.
We get back up. And, carry on.
Pray for Boston.
