Wednesday's edition of CNN Student News is devoted exclusively to coverage of this week's terror attack in Boston. Our prayers are going out for all of those affected, as well as the city itself.
If you'd like to share your thoughts on this tragedy, you're welcome to here.

It is crazy these days with alot of stuff but a attack on Bosten Marathon is just crazy. I think it is a terrist attack. Everythime I think and talk about this with my class and friends I have said it could be revenge. From killing Osama Bin Laden. I just think about 9/11 thinking a terrost attack and then a attack in Bosten I think it is Revenge.
All My love and Caring goes out to all of the famlies that have lost ones or hve family members that have injuries. I am so sorry that this happen to yout families.
I feel that these evil people were not thinking at the time and they did not care that many people would get hurt. Many people are angry and they feel sad. Some people would want revenge but they let it go that makes no sense to hurt all of those pedestrians.They should have let it go. :(
they knew what they were doing thats why they did it
Like I said in my comment, it's possible an Al Qaeda agent snuck into the US somehow, and planned another attack.
Firstly, the city was Boston not 'Bosten'. Secondly, don't go blaming all terrorist attacks on Arabs. I am a part Syrian, and it irritates me when many Americans blame it on an entire race. That is called racism, but according to political correctness, racism is defined as a white stereotyping blacks or latinoes. Last time I checked Arabs and Muslims have as much rights as dogs in this Christian nation. Oh, and by the way, it was a DOMESTIC terrorist attack. That's why only 3 people died; Al Qaeda would have caused a much more serious attack if they wanted to.
I don't think they are blaming just Arabs, and they are not talking about racism. But, I think it is somewhat related like... nation to nation. Not for his own idea for sure. I believe there is someone or some group behind them.
Dude, calm down, we're sorry. We know where these guys were from now. we were just guessing. No one was blaming anyone. That and America is a nation all religions and backgrounds. I was born in the US, but my ancestors are from European countries like England and some from Germany. So it's not fair to blame other races, and last time I checked, Muslims and Arabs had as much rights as a person born in the USA. Boston Strong! Thank you heroes!
Yes, I agree. It's probably a form of revenge. :(
As a runner my heart goes out to all the runners running for a cause, the Newtown victims. It is a tragedy and its heartbreaking to hear something like this happen. Many prayers and thoughts are sent from around the world.
in the movie "Act of Valor" they had bombs similar to these wit the ball berrings and there has to be sewer pipes under the track thats where i think they should search next and why not have guards run the undrground of the city before the race coming up soon and who i think it is is either north korea or afghanistan and iraq
I thought it was a awful event. So many people were hurt and sad that their families have to see them like that. My prayers are going out for all of those affected, as well as the city itself.
As citizens from Massachusetts, i believe we were all struck by how horrifyingly close this attack came to home. You hear about bad things happening in far away places but it all seems surreal until it hits home. Bostonians, myself included, appreciate the prayers and concerns from those around the world. Thank you.
It is so sad that someone would do somthing like this. I hope the person who did this will be brought to justice as Obama said it. I hope the family's of those who died and were injered will recover And people will put them in their prayers.
I hope all those effected in the bombing and the city of Boston have the affection and backing of the country. We all hope to see those responsible brought to justice. May God bless Boston. And may God bless the victims families.
i don't understand why people would be so dumb as to do this.at least only 3 people have died, but i wish they didn't. on one of the clips i was watching over this event i saw a lady help a man push a stroller across the finish line. i am glad to see we still have people like her and i pray to god everybody will recover from their injuries. lets hope this tragedy doesn't repeat its self.
I think it's awful that they did this, especially on what should have been a happy cheerful day, and to innocent defenseless people too.
Please pray for the victims and those who are wounded. This is terrible news especially it happened 5 months after Newtown, Conneticut.
I am truly sorry for everyone's lost and everyone that is injured. I hope and pray you get better soon; the family that lost a loved one: I give you my support and I hope you will find relief from that aching pain in your chest.
Why is there always something wrong that has happened?
My cousin was in the marathon, and when my family heard about it we were startled, and we called him right away. He was alright. Now when I go to any store with the news on with news including the bombing, I can see that everyone was worried about others like they were a part of their family. I am just happy that there are people in the world that not only care about themselves but for others.
It's so sick that people would ever do this type of thing... Why on Earth would you want to hurt/kill innocent people?! They did nothing wrong and now the people doing this aren't helping with our world peace situation either
Once again, at a point of national terror, I find myself turning to Student News. You consistently manage to strike the balance between informing and helping people cope, all while the big budget, high profile news sources are busy sensationalizing and grabbing and reporting before they have verified facts. Thank you, thank you from an adult viewer who has come to depend on you for real, thoughtful news.
I believed it should have never happend, just like with the shootings at the schools and movie. As life goes on, i just hope our nation stays strong! And we can get through anything that life has to offer.
This terror is horrible. Even though I'm not in US, I do understand the victim's family's minds since I lost my relatives recently. I hope the government of US will catch the criminals who are responsible for this terror and give then really bad punishments for those who were hurt and killed.
Yes, and the "Really bad punishment" should be the death penalty. It is not cruel and unusual. He should also have a swift trial and very little jail time.
I live in Korea, and heard the news in newspaper. I have deep sympathy and deep sorrow to the victims, injureds and the family of those who were all related to this incident. I've heard that Boston is a such strong and the city with a deep history. As President Obama said, I would like to have all Bostonians to get up from this shock and get back to normal. Also, I've heard the families of Sandy Hook Elementary schools were there. I'm so sorry to hear that news and hope London Marathon would be succesfully held and god will bless America and the world. Let's have a moment of silence for a minute.
My heart goes out to all the families affected by this tragedy, and I just hope and pray that nothing like this happens in the next big marathon.
It's horrible that anything like that could happen. Their thoughts are held in the prayers of all Americans.
'All Americans' pray? I'm sorry, but I try to learn science that isn't from a 2000 year old fiction novel...
If you are saying that the Bible is a 2000 Year-Old fiction novel, you are wrong . The Bible is the infallible and inspired word of God. And the Bible tells us to "Pray without ceasing", so ALL AMEICANS should pray.
Okay guys, let's not turn this into a religious conflict. Let's just either agree that we are all upset by this event, and we wish Boston the best in recovering from this this tragedy. Or we could simply agree to disagree. Either way, stop fighting. :(
I feel bad and confused. I don't know why someone would do this.
I feel really bad about those people. I hope the government finds out who did this because those people need to recover soon.
Pray for them who was gone and injured in the terron attack in Bosten. I hope USA government will find a perpetrator as soon as posible to protect people from danger.
I think that this tragedy will help us as Americans to realize just how lucky we are, and to continue to fight for freedom in other countries.
My heart and prayers go out for the people of Boston. Tragedies like this are always hard but I know we are strong enough as a country to get through this!
This is absolutely horrific. There is no reason that anything like this should happen on American soil. I hope that the FBI can get a lead on a suspect and that justice can be served for all of the people affected by this event
I am anxious to see what will become of the people who set off the bombs, if they are caught. The fact that someone actually has the ability to do this to people is shocking and it makes me realize what people are capable of.
My thoughts and prayers are for the people in Boston.
My prayers go out to the people that were killed or hurt in Boston.
I feel worried about the people who were hurt. I worry about going out to crowded places.
I am extremely sad to see that people would become this low. Attacking a marathon is low. I am praying and hoping that the people affected by this tragedy. I am looking forward to the people responsible for this to be locked away for good. Thoughts go to everyone.
I think that people are just plain stupid! I don't understand peoples' reasoning for doing stupid things, I mean seriously what made people be so idiotic! Get it through your mind that committing terrorism is not helping or bettering your life! So just stop it, whoever you are!
I am really thankfulll that, as a nation, we can pull together during times of tragedy. The terrorists have the motive to instill fear and in us, so we should respond with valliant behavior instead of terror.
The bombing at the Boston marathon was a very horrific event that is very gloomy. Many innocent people were injured and hurt by this attack. I'm very sad for the people that lost their lives, they shall be remembered.
People can be so cruel, not caring about anyone else or how much pain they're putting families into by their actions.
I don't understand how people can be so heartless towards someones life. I mean come on how can someone commit an act this way and continue to keep living there life. Whatever the reason for this act was it was uncalled for and disrespectful to the American name.
I think it's sad for the friends and family. I hope they can catch all the people in the attack.
I'm outraged that someone would do such a thing to a bunch of innocent people. Everyone there was just trying to have a good time and enjoy the sports, and then this maniac sets off two time bombs and ruins everything. I'm glad that there are people who are trying to help Boston recover, and my thoughts and prayers go out to those who's lives were impacted by this tragedy. I hope whoever did this is found and put to justice. No deserves to have to go through something like this. My guess is, some how, and al Qaeda agent got unseen into the USA, and planned some sort of attack. Then when they heard about the Boston marathon, they decided it was the perfect opportunity to strike. I had no idea 2013 would be so full of violence, with the Sandy Hook shooting and now this.
I have many Boston people in my prayers and hope we can get through this horrible tragedy because it's terrible that our own american people is trying to bomb us.
I wonder who would do something like this I mean hurting innocent people and killing little kids it is just not right people like this make me sick.
It is just so sad that weather or not they were targeting the runners or a certain person, spectators were killed. Some were on vacation, some were there to watch the race, including an 8 year old boy. It is just so sad that any body died and that there were so many injured. But I know that Boston the US and the injured will recover. People might talk quieter, Walk slower, but we will never be forever shaken and always will stand tall.
My mom's friend moved away but her husband comes back to the U.S. to run this marathon and he had just finish the race about an hour before the first bomb. It's just scary to think what could have happened to him and others how had already finished. There could have been so many more deaths.
I am really sad about the boy who died.
I think it is so sad that you go with friends or family to just see a marathon for fun and then someone has to drop some bombs and kill three people and have over 100 people with injures. I just don't think its far to anyone.
The is such a huge tragedy. It's hard to think that someone would be cruel enough and have the intention to murder so many people, and the thought that it probably is a citizen in our country is just disgusting.
i heard that people after the race still ran and donated blood
this person who decided to blow up a bomb in a social event with all different cultures and people and a lot of people and in a big city too was not just aiming to scare people i believe there main goal was to harm/murder people and thats what i think his/her main plan was to kill people or just hurt families and thats what he/she meant to do and thats what he/she did
I'm happy to hear that a FBI agent believes that the person who set the bombs was not in a terrorist group (al-qaeda/ Taliban). He believes that is was a single citizen who set the bombs. Also, if it was a terrorist group such as al-qaeda wouldn't they admit to the attack? Because they did admit to the 9/11 attack in New York. Next, whoever did this horrific, devastating, heinous act need to be brought to justice.
One of my friends lost her sibling to a disease, but to lose a sibling to a murderer would be horrible. I can't believe that someone that might be living in this country would want to hurt/kill people at a marathon that was meant to honor the people that were lost in Newtown.
I think that this is very sad tragedy because people went to run and have a good time but after they ran bombs went off and killed 3 people.I think who ever did this is a little crazy in the head because he or she new that people would be there running there.
I watched this video and all I could think of is how sad it is to know that these innocent people have died. Especially since one of the victims was an eight-year old boy. My whole school is talking and mourning over this horrible tragedy and all my friends and I want to help as well.
I think that it is really sad because if a person was only intending to kill or serious injure one person they had made a giant mistake. Also I think it would be sad if you were at home and the rest of your family is at this run and then you would get a call from the hospital or police department saying one of your children has died, also your wife and daughter are seriously injured.
It's so sad that there were three deaths. One of those death was a little boy. That terror attack was so depressing. Imagine if you got a call from the hospital or police or some one, saying that your son has died and your wife is injured, that would be terrible and so sad i would cry if that happened. Stay Strong Boston!
I think that the poor family that lost a son and left the mother and the daughter in a critical condition would have to be in a very bad state of mind. That family probably thought that this would be something cool to go and participate in and that they could go and have a good time together, and to top it all off this was something that was trying to honor the people in Newtown its just terrible.
I am so sorry for the people who have been hurt, lost their lives, or in critical condition after the Boston bomb. I am also sorry for their families and friends. I believe that the President and FBI will find out who did this and punish them.
I don't think that tis is fair for someone to set a bomb at a marathon. Why would someone want to do that? the person must not care who he killed or who he hurt.
i think it is really sad for tragedy to happen i wish it would stop it makes me cry to see it happen.
We feel sad, and we hope that the Bostonians will get well soon.
Keep your head up
Keep Hope Alive
Boston is in my prayers
I hope they catch the terrorists
How would the terrorists feel if that was their familiy members getting hurt.
God will make it get better
I think what happened during the 2013 Boston Marathon was tragic it was a horrible event, the people who died did not desereve to die. I liked that most cities,places, and events had moments of silence, due to the loss of innocent lives.I also believe it was a terrorist attack and hope the murderer is found.I do think our school we should have a moment of silence and show some recognition that we care.I also think this reminds me of 9/11 but I don't think it is that HORRIBLE.It may not be as tragic,but it is horrible because people still lost their lives when they should not have.My thoughts and prayers go out to their mourning families,but we should not be scared forever...but we should still take caution and live our lives.
I just want everyone that ran in the marathon, to know that there are millions of people out there praying for you.
We just want everyone who was in the Boston area and running or watching to know that you are in are hearts.
We feel horrible about what happened. We wish we could help!
Stay strong Boston! Praying for everyone who lost their loved ones and for those who were injured. We hope everyone is safe and well. We feel terrible and are so sorry for everyone who was there.
Pray for Boston. This was quite a tragedy that has happened and we just wanted to put some rumors to rest. On instagram and other social networks it said a little girl had died. This is not true and it makes me sick that people make up rumors to make an act of terrorism more dramatic. People have to realize that this is not something to joke about.
I can't understand why someone would want to hurt people they probably never even knew or were connected to them.
I pray for Boston and the victims of this tragedy with my heart to the highest heavens.
i feel sory for his los and hope he can pass on this horible tradgedy i will pray for their family. :(
It's just plain awful. :'(
The people need to remember that through all of this, God will be with us, he has a plan for this, He knew it would happen. We don't know His plan, but God is with us, "He will never leave us nor forsake us."
i think this is so sad. and so soon after the shooting at the school in connecticut
Well my thoughts and prayers are definably on the people in Boston. I just wish people in our society wouldn't be so cruel.
I have talked with all my friends and family about the bombing and I still don't understand how ANYONE could do that. It seems like everyone in this world is being hurt or hurting others in some way and I don't get it. Why can't we all just get along and be nice?
whats up withe all these terriost attacks!! i'm praying for all the victims, and i am really sorry this happened! may the two victims of this attack REST IN PEACE!!!!
Our hearts and prayers go out to all those affected by these bombings. Our society needs to stop using violence as a way to get across a message. God Bless all of the people of Boston and the hero's braver than us.
When people do things like this its devistating. It makes me sad to think things like this are going on in our world. I don't want these things to happen but they do. I wonder all the time about what our world would be like it things like this would just stop.
I would also like to say that Boston and all of the victims are in my prayers.
All my thoughts and prayers would be on the victims of terror attck in Boston. It's so cowardly and not fair to attack the innocents.
Its so sad that this happened but i think we should prepare for more tragedies like this because its only going to get worse
This is a really sad terrorist attack. And this has just happened after the shooting at the school in connecticut
Wow. Too bad a eight year old died in the process. My brother is eight, so it makes me my appreciate him that much more. In a strange way, the worse will help better us. In other words, learning through the most difficult and horrifying tragitys, will only make us stronger. I will never understand how a person could do such a thing but oh well.
My thoughts are why would you want to kill your own people its a cruel act who ever did this should pay for injuring and killing a lot of innocent citizens.
Why the Boston Marathon. I'm not surprised if its North Korea or terrorist attacks. We are all apart of the same world what's the point, and these innocent people surely didnt deserve it. Prayers and Wishes go out to the families and victims.
I remember what happened on 9-11.I remember the shooting in Newtown. Now we all will never forget the victims of the Boston marathon bombing. # pray for Boston God Bless USA
My prayers are out to the people in Boston. Nobody deserves to be in such a tragedy. Hopefully we could find a way to stop terrorist attacks. This is a terrible moment for our country and hopefully we could recover.
Nobody was expecting that bombing i feel so bad that i wasn't there to help. So i say now i pray for you and i hope that you all wont have to experience that again.
This world is so full of people who act like they don`t know that there is other people out there who can get hurt.
This bombing shows how careless people are and how their hurting others. I don`t think it`s fair to hurt others for no reason. people just need to stop this craziness!!!
I'm was absolutely HORRIFIED after I watched this episode, but I can't say I'm that surprised. The way our world is today is horrible, there are so many murders and wars that happen, for no good reason. I really hope the police find the man who bombed Boston, and make sure he's behind bars for a very, VERY long time. The families and friends affected in this tragedy will be in my prayers.
It just seems odd to me that the intention of the bomber was to damage people’s limbs. Since it was a running event, this person or persons wanted people to crawl. Fast recovery to the wounded and condolences to the families of lost ones.
Whoever has done this deserves to be punished. The person just maimed innocent civilians - some permanently - and killed three people. Boston is in everyone's prayers.
I am praying for the souls of those who have lost their lives, that they will rest in peace, for those who are injured that they may recover soon, and especially for those who helped the victims of this attack, for they showed love in a time of sadness and chaos.
It's utterly ridiculous to me that someone could do something like this. As I am getting older, I witness more and more corruption. Not only was this a terrible thing for the bomber to do, but America also makes so many assumptions! As soon as the news of this tragedy spread, many people automatically assumed the suspect was a Muslim. America should not focus on worry, we should hold our ground and be prepared for anything that faces us next.
You know, I'm still young, and like you said as we ALL get older we ALL see more corruption!
you know your right when we have are children we don't want them living in a world who thinks war is the answer. if you think war is the answer your so wrong . think of the many people who can get hurt
That's messed up the explosion in Boston.
I feel bad for the people in the explosion.
This tourist attack is way worst than the
THIS LIKE 9/11 and i agree with you
When things like this happen. It reminds you that there are still bad people in the world doing bad things.
They have been forsaken may god be with them always.
Why would some one do this? Pray for Boston.
It may be a long shot, but does anyone else have North Korea under suspicion?
Yeah once we catch the people who did this we should figure out if they did this
Hannah, I was thinking the same thing until this mornings show.
Todays world is a cruel place. Filled with sick minded individuals that want nothing more than to see people hurt. Truthfuly there is a special place in hell for people like them. My thoughts and prayers go to Bosten. No one deserved this.
I live near Boston, and I was terrified when I heard about the bombing. My prayers will go to Boston and the upcoming London marathon. :'(
I saw the bombing on TV, and I was astonished, I just couldn’t believe it at all, that someone could do that much evil in one day. I was sad, heartbroken, and I was praying for the family’s that had to see and feel sadness about loved ones on what happened On April 15th, People ran 1 mile in complete silence to honor the killed and the wounded. The whole United States could not believe what happened just before their eyes. Body parts flying everywhere and Blood on the ground in Boston, It looked like a war zone, two bombs.
It's sad that someone would do such a thing. The families to those who died are in prayers and thoughts
My prayers go out to the poor people in Boston. I think that says it all.
I think the Boston Attack was just terrible, but it's important to be thankful for those who try to help. Like in Mr. Roger's quote, we neet to remember the helpers instead of the tragedy.
it is sick what theese people would do and i can not wait to find those people who did it so we can hurt them like they hurt us THIS KIND OF STUFF CAN MAKE US AWARE AND READY FOR THE NEXT TIME!!
As tears rolled down my face as I heard that my aunt had died in the 9-11 plane that had crashed into a field, caring people all around me, comforted me in my sorrow. Now, it is me who should do the same and comfort those who have been affected by the tragedy.
i`m sorry for the people who lost their lives in 9/11 and what happened on 4/17. i lost someone important and i know how it is with all those people
Stay strong Boston! We hope the 3 people in heaven are at peace. How can people be so heartless? Human life is important! We hope the people who committed this horrific crime will be caught and won't be able to do this again. Also we're upset about this situation and we wish we could help!
#Pray4Boston. This is a terrible thing. The one question i would like to ask the culprit is what they got out of bombing people??? We should all pull together as one and be united. This makes me upset and angry at the terrorist groups that feel like killing people is the right thing. These people need to be set straight and show how to treat people right. People need to stay strong and keep praying for the victims of the bombing. This is not right and truly horrible.
I think that it is horrible that someone would do something like this. I hope they find who it was and very soon. I hope that Boston stays strong and most importantly people pray for all of those who are wounded and who were killed. Stay strong!
i feel really bad for people who died and was injured.i don't see how someone could do something like that
This tragedy is horrible and I give the victims and their families my sincerest apologies. How can someone be so thoughtless and careless? How can someone have such low value for human life? I am sure that the U.S and Boston will recover #prayforBoston
I feel so awful. All of my prayers go out to the families and runners who's child or family member has been lost. Boston my thoughts go out to you! God bless you all! Thankfully, FBI are trying to help them recover. My prayers will be with you through this month!
I do not understand. Why should spectators deserve to be killed or have loved ones killed or severely injured? People do not deserve this no matter what. I know that america will recover, though. If Newtown can recover, so can Boston. It is extremely sad and we as a country do not deserve this.
Bless those who died or are injured.I hope that they will recover and will live in peace forever. God bless Martin,College student, and the amazing woman. Bless you guys.
It's terrible that this had to happen. No one deserves to be killed and its tragic that people were effected in this attack. I'm glad that people could help. I'm also glad that my aunt wasn't effected in the attack.
Pray for all people who were impacted in the bombing. It's so sad and i wish that people were nicer and better than that. When people helped other people in need it impacts me so much and makes me look up to them in every way. I'm so sad that someone would think that way and try to hurt innocent people. I'm praying for all people who were injured and the families of people who had to die. Hearing about the marathon gave me shivers and I immediately began to cry. Pray for the people you don't know or did know that was killed or hurt. The thought of someone doing that makes me so sad. I don't understand what the person was thinking.
We really need to stop the senseless violence in our country. We are a United Nation, we need to start acting like it.
All day yesterday my friends and I were writin things (our arms, hands, wrists, and anything else that we could find )like "Pray 4 Boston" or " We feel bad that we can't do much about this!"
Why would someone do this king of thing?!
I hope that who ever did this feels sorry because they have hurt alot of people just enjoying the run. I am outraged, because most of the people in the race were running for a cause. we should all be in prayers for the families, and glad that somthing is being done about it.
I hope whoever did this shouldn't of because it wasn't good
Its horrible what has happen and innocent people were hurt and killed. I hope they find the person who has done this and they pay for what they did. The runners and people watching will be in my prayers. We cant feel safe anywhere these days whether its while were running, at the movies, or at school something bad can happen at any moment.
Even this event is tragic, it's really nice to see people come together as a nation and help one another out. People showed how they truly are heroes.
Even though this event is tragic, it's really nice to see people come together as a nation and help one another out. People showed how they truly are heroes
I think it is wrong to do such a thing to some harmless people that just wanted to have fun running
it is bad enough that we all sin sometimes, but when its that bad i cant believe that someone could do something as bad as bombs to harmless people.
this is a horrible tragety people need to come forward to the police and help
It is horrible that these things happen. But this attack was meant to weaken the United States. Instead, all that the terrorists succeeded in was making us stronger and more united as one country. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families.
i send my prayers to the victims and i hope there would be hope and relieve to the family victims and all the the people envolved in the tragic accident and may that cruel person be found.besides, who would do such a horrible thing to inosent peole and their childeren?
if someone would step up and take the time and hand to save what evil minds are doing to ou beautiful nation, they wold relize thats not what we are now
i hope that cruel person is eventually found and arrested for what he did to the hundereds of people that did nothing. he should comit to what he did instead of waiting until he gets busted
If they think they can get away with cheating they will do it more and more. If they get caught then they will see that cheating is bad and it wont help their grade just hurt it; and it will also hurt them because they wont actually learn the information that is on the tests.
These past few days have been hard for the people affected by the happenings in Boston. What is past is gone but we need to keep all of the people affected by the bombings in our thoughts and prayers. We need to find a way to end all of this terror in our world!
I feel a lot of sorrow in my heart because the participants in the marathon, were doing it for the Newtown victims. It brings tears to my eyes. My thoughts and prayers will go out to those injured and their family members. It makes me proud of those who didn't have to help but did. Especially law enforcement and firefighters.
We cant let the bombings in Boston scare us. We need to become stronger and more united as a nation is order to get through this! Prayers and thoughts go out to everyone in Boston!
We cant let the bombings in Boston scare us. We need to become stronger and more united as a nation in order to get through this! Prayers and thoughts go out to everyone in Boston!
I do not understand why people would do such a crime. I would like to ask the people who did this if they would like their liife taken away when they have caused no harm. I feel that the terroists who did this are trying to get revenge for when we killed Osama Bin Laden. I hope that Boston will be fine once again, the terrorists who did this are caught and put in jail and that we as a nation stay strong and overcome any task that comes in our way, good or bad.
why are yall acting so surprised about the Boston Bombings you do know there are people who want to kill Americans, they know they can kill Americans, and they are willing to kill Americans, And they don't care how they have to do it or where they have to do it, or who it's targeting ,or how peaceful the area is that they are targeting for example the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor . this attack was meant more as a statement because if the person who planted the bombs could have killed more people if he or she wanted to. at any attack one could attack the U.S. .my thoughts and prayers go to the people of Boston it is so horrible of what happened. And please understand I simply expressing my thought. And to Heroes of boson to they showed everything a American should not running afraid of danger but running to it for all they knew there was another bomb and the first one was just meant to bring people to the more deadly bomb or a gun man inside any of building near the bombs waiting to come out to wreak even more havoc, or the bomb could have contained a biological weapon .
Is the person who did this went NUTS!!!!! I FEEL SORRY FOR THE 3 INOCCENT PEOPLE WHO DIED! Imean now there was poisenious stuff that could have killed Obama!!!!!!!!! HAS ANYONE HEARD OF WORLD PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
I think this world is going crazy, with all these attacks, were doomed by that i mean our goverment is callapsing along with the rerst of the world
this is a great tragedy which has a saddening impact on the world. I hope that everyone who was injured recovers and that the culprits will be caught.
I feel truly sorry for everyone, I wish they didn't do this. However, I do suppose there are a few crazy people out there, I'm very sad for them, I can't believe the terrorists have the heart to hurt ton of innocent people.
It is really sad to think that anyone would do such a thing like this. Why do people just want to kill random strangers? I hope the F.B.I. can find the people that did this and bring them to justice.
The best runners in the race that I saw were the ones running towards the victims to help them out. I'm glad that many people were brave enough to potentially put themselves in harms way to help those who had been hurt.
I cannot believe that people get hurt without doing something. Someone should put a stop on it and also, fast.
I will never know how that moment felt to them, but I hope no one loses another loved one due to a terrorist attack. We have had so many tragedy's impact America in the past through weeks/months. God bless all those that were killed/injure, your in all of our prayers.
#PRAY4BOSTON i cant think of how many people got hurt i hope, pray, and believe that you as a state will stand your ground and stay holding that ground for a very very long time, i Believe in you all!! STAY ARMY STRONG!!
I hate just thinking about it I think that it is just wrong to bomb a race.
Why would somebody do that I just hope we catch him.thats just the thing we can't lose hope
It was a terrible tragedy, and I hope it won't happen again. Those runners and injured people were so lucky that there were so many caring people and helpers to be there at the tough time.
I sincerely feel sorry for the happening in Boston. Many Korean in my country were shocked at that tragic. It is time to pray for Boston.
I think everyone going into a new major city or state, they should get a background check.
I just have NO clue why people would do such a thing.
praying for all those victims of the bombing.
One question. Why? Do people really feel better if they kill others? Were they trying to scare or did they just want the attention?
I don't get why someone would do this. It just doesn't make sense when people intentioinally murder people. Its not funny and its not right. We need to be more united and peaceful.
I think i is strange and scary that people would attack others like that. My mom was running the marathon,and she is okay, but it is still scary to think about what happened to some other people.
I hope who ever did this regrets it and never does something like this again. I don't understand why someone would do such a horrible thing, but whatever the reason is I hope people stop doing this.
Why would someone do this on what was supposed to be a happy day, Why?????????????
This violence makes our country looks bad. We need to stop this. Maybe this is what the mayans predicted, that the world would end because of the people who make bad decisions will destroy the world. I pray for all of the people injured or killed.
I think people need to just calm down and take a chill pill! I mean nobody likes the bombs that are going off here so just leave us alone!
I don't understand how people can do this on purpose. It's sad to think of everyone in Boston and how they must be feeling. But it is also a positive that so many people cared to help with this tragedy.
This is terrible, I mean what is with the violence America. Seriously why are we attacking ourselves.
I feel like more people need to think before they do. People who died that day or were injured didn't do anything wrong and were just their to cheer on their friends and family and look what happened. All my prayers go out to these people people and their families. Pray for Boston
When I found out about the bombing in Boston I was devastated. I am truly sorry for what has happened. If anyone is hurt or lost a loved one know that in the bible it says "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength". If you feel are injured or you lost someone just pray to god and he can help us get through this hard time.
We all need to band together and keep things like this from happening in our country instead of writing on your wrist actually take action send money to families who were hurt from the bomb
they know who did it one is dead because the other one ran him over but there Russians whos home got invaded
All i have to say is that R.I.P!!!:(
It's sad to me because all of the runners were running for a cause and somebody bombed them.
sweet cool that is so awesome the video was luge t the people flying everywhere ; 0
I am very sorry for everbody that lost their lives during the marathon. I wish everybody can stop the violence and live up to world peace. I will be praying for all these families
this is horrible i hope that the people that did this feels really sorry for taking all those other people's lifes
I feel bad for the people who died in the boston marothon what kind of people blows up innocent people anyways we will find them before something else happens i will pray for the people who died poor people :[
always have faith that god will help you and the others also i will help pray for those who past away.
I think that what happend is terrible and should have never happend
I am truly sorry for everybody that was wounded and for those who died
I am very sorry for Boston and all who died and there family members
This is definitely tragic and unexpected!
this is awful people should be able to participate in a public event without almost getting blown!
I feel sorry for everyone who lost their lives in Boston, but I hope we can get past this and remember the people who were lost.
I believe why someone would do that! They should be ashamed of themselves.
I will have all of these people in my prayers.
You all in Boston are very sad but keep cool and try to think of the good things you and your family members had together:(
For the people who died I owe my respects. I feel bad for what happened. But the big question is why did they just bomb Boston? Did they have a reason? Or are they coming back for more?
i feel bad for them but at leats they are in a good place
i hate who someone would do somthing like this a peace race.this hole day were writing this its the worst thing some one could ever do. i feel so for the poor people that are dead, injered,or are suffoering because of there losses.
i think this is very sad for the people who have trouble with their loss i dont really think that people dont think before they do this.I dont think they realize they can get in to severe consequences.I bless everyone who was in that accident.
It seems like every other month there is something else happening. This world is just falling apart,. and i don't like. I wish it would just end. I also think the citizens could do more about.
My father works in Boston, and I have been there many times. Now when i go, I will always be thinking of the people who have lost friends and family to the explosion. My prayers will always be with the entire city of Boston.
Along with Timothy, my dad also works part time in Boston. It very well could have been my dad in the explosion that day. I just want to let the city of Boston know that I am thinking of them and praying for safe recovery.
I think that we should stand strong and remember those who died in Boston
So many bombs! Why do people do this?
They tell people to stay inside so they will be safe. But even seeing the suspect can hurt you. The MIT policeman probably didn't even see him, but was killed anyway. :( Like Medussa.
The Boston Terrorist attack, just comes to show how evil some of our nations members can be. I am very displeased with the outcome of this attack.I have a feeling this could be the beginning of something huge.
This was terrible and I feel so bad for the lives that were lost. I want to do whatever I can to contribute. I hope that somebody catches whoever is behind this because the culprit needs to be caught.
I think that since they killed so many people then they should be killed. because it was not fair for the people who were killed and it is not fair to their family's. And when they get killed they should be brodcast on live televisionso any one who wants to bomb they will know not to.
I think this is outrageous, there are always some one killing,threatening or hurting one another, it is not cool so why do people do it!
I do not get the people who do such things, I mean if they have problems why punish others for it??????
I feel that those people who commited those crimes feel sorry because they hurt lots of people and killed 3 others. It hurts me alot to see people hurting eachother fo no reason what so ever just because they ethier are hurting inside and want to share their pain or are just kind of crazy. :( we should all pray for the families who lost their loved ones and i hope those people who caused the bomb pay for their ways
Sometimes I wonder why people do such things. I am sure that this state or these people did anything to persuade theses people to do anything. MY family is praying.
I think that this is is really sad and the suspect left alive should come forward and admit to his wrongdoing.
Is this what the world has come to?It sickens me to think human beings could do this to one another.
I didn't like it when it happened. So I'm glad that they have caught the suspects and that we helped boston stand back up to the glory of the USA?
I feel sorry for those who were injured and hurt
What I can't wrap my head around is that people – conscious people who fully know and understand what they are doing – would hurt and even kill other human beings. It's horrible that anybody could do something in which people are tortured, injured, or killed, and not even care about it. The Boston Tragedy is one of these kind of things, where the persecutor should be severely punished. Though we can't change what happened, we can always keep Boston in our prayers.
I hope that whoever did this is brought to justice; it isn't right for innocent people to die or be injured. With everything that is going on, I'd think that everyone would be on alert right about now. Everything is so corrupted.. how are people NOT insane?
whoever did this should be sorry for themselves because because there was lots of tears
whoever did this should be sorry for them selves because lots of the men and woman were having fun running. we should pray for familes and the people that got killed but the people that got killed would probably would be in heaven bye now.
we should be praying for boston every day because it will make people that were in the race who died will have a new body in heaven and it will make the people that it was their son or dauhter.
I believe that the bombing was a very sad day. Not just for Boston, but for the all people in the U.S as well. I've seen some flags lowered because of the tragedy. We should all give prayers to those victims that were injured and hope that they will heal. I hope that the families who have lost members can recover. If Newtown can recover, Boston can as well. Stay strong Boston.
from what I see everyone in Boston deserves a pat on the back for being strong and helping each other during the bombing. God bless Boston.
I'm glad this is all over and that the criminal is in custody so he will do no more harm to this lovely area of Watertown and Boston!
I think that the thing that should NOT get to involved is the news. It can make the victims crowded and annoyed. so say what needs to be said, but DON"T take it to far.
what do you mean by the news shouldnt get involved ? the news has every right tp be part of every single thing in this world. that's just how we people from near and far get the messages or the news of what's happening....thanks though for your comment...
I don't think family guy should of made that episode about the Boston bombing. God bless boston.
I think the person who did it was seeking attention. There were a lot of innocent people doing the marathon and a lot of them were injured.
thsts an understatement
Whoever started the bomb shouldn't of done that because lots of people were enjoying the run and the people in the crowd were happy watching the people running. We should be praying for families and friends this week.
Just picture this: someone setting a bomb at a Race in Boston. You should also picture this somebody hiding in a boat the whole time and another one already killed. We should be praying for families and friends.
I cant believe that guy took three lives away, and one was an 8 year old!
Even if we have already caught the criminals, we cannot undo what they have already done.
I think that that Boston should pray that they'll be better because it was all of the terrorists fault. They could hold a food drive or a book fair or a garage sale to help out their city.
the people who did should be ashamed of themselves because they killed innocent who did nothing to them...like that one boy who just wanted world peace!!:( yeah...they were peaceful!! (sarcastically) 4 ever prey 4 Boston!! Boston:the friends & families of the injured and the killed during the race
Some people do things without thinking; some do things perfectly aware of the consequences. Question is, can we stop them in time?
BostonStrong!!! I hope you Stay strong. :)
I want to thank the police for putting a bunch of time in.But they they are in pretty good position right now.I hope something turns out soon and it is good.So I guess what I am saying is good and you have putt great effort in to it.I know you can do it because you are and a AMERICAN.
Boston is a strong city. This may have caused a big impact, but this makes us stronger and prepared for the worst. We will always remember this moment along with the families and people who have either survived or had died. :)
i am parying for boston non stop i just wish we could stop the pain that comes from something like this . i wish we could have a wourld with no killing or pain
Please don't forget about our friends in West, Texas. Their story is heartbreaking and it needs to be shared. Fourteen were killed and over 200 injured and you really haven't done their stories justice. You've given a great attention and coverage of the vicious terrorists and their victims but you've barely shared the stories of the West, Texas people at all. This is a shame! They need your love and support too!
i think that the world really doesn't care about the others that are in this world with them because if they did then they wouldn't do what they do. killing others, tormenting others etc... is not something a world does. what a world is supposed to do is stick together not tear it apart. I have to agree with some people saying that some people do things with out thinking and some people do things perfectly aware of the consequences. in my opinion everything you do you are aware of the consequences its just that at that given point in time they don't care.even if we think this is over just wait for the anniversary of this pain to come up or just realize that something else will occur. i mean think about it before this we've had a guy kill little kids and a staff member inside of a grade school and then shot himself. and then there was this. it's as if people don't have any thing better to do in their life other then corrupt the world. i just want Boston to know that they are loved and that they are not hated its just that some people love hurting people or hurting the world.
the person that did this shouldn't of because it wasen't really good for them to do it.
When I heard about this, my best friend and I had just been talking while on her swings. We had no idea what had happened, and as far as we knew, everyone inside was watching Doctor Who, and everything was perfectly fine. My friend and I walked in, and everyone was sitting on the couch, eyes focused on the screen. My friend's mom beckoned us over, and we sat there in horror at what had happened. Things like this are just going to keep occurring until God comes back to bring His children home. For now, the best thing we can do is pray for those who are affected, and help in what ways we can.
I can't belive that anyone would even consider doing something as horrible as that. If you live in Boston, I hope you are able to adjust back to normal life.
My heart and prayers go out to those affected in the Boston Bombing. I cannot believe that anyone could do something like this.
i think that we need more info before we start to make assumptions just yet.
If you live in Boston, I hope you are able to adjust back to normal life. It makes me wonder why anyone would even consider doing something as awful as that.
The terrorist attack has taken a huge toll on my family and many others my mom gave my brother sister and I talk about how it is wrong and sad and how we should be thankful for all our world has given to us and we should not take it for granite
I know that all of those people that were killed are in Heaven. God is there he made us with freewill and sometimes bad outweighs the good. Make right choices. god bless boston
I feel sorry for the Bostonians that were killed by the terrorists but I am proud that Boston stayed strong and kept their heads up while all this occurred.
I feel so sorry for those who died or got injured in Boston. Everyone should do what they can to help. STAY STRONG BOSTON!!!
Boston is strong and I hope nothing like this ever happens again!
I think Boston should start going back to there normal lives and they should pray for the victims.
its a sad tragedy in probbally the worst week in us history
This is just so aweful why is there so much killing going on this year it needs to stop they are killing inocent people.
This terrorist attack is no different from 9/11. Terrorists from all over the world trying to break us down, but as a nation will rise at this loss.
I think that the Boston Terror was a horrible thing that happened. In my opinion the guy who did the bombing sould be severely punished. It is not fair that the people of Boston had to witness this horrible event at the Boston Marathon.
:-( i felt terrible when i found out about the boston bombing i am going to pray for ALL the boston victims. #staystrongboston!!
what a bad day to do something like this i pray for all the deaths and all the hurt love frome our school goes out to everyone
One I have noticed is:
The earth can't go on without animal and human natural deaths. But, we can go on without terrorist attacks. We need animal and human deaths so it won't over populate but we don't need destructive people who plan terrorist attacks.
Its also very good that many of the runners stepped out of the race that they have been training for the big race to help many people. I bet live itself didn't matter anymore. A lot of the runners were probably thinking just run. And I'm sure many were risking there lives to help people. Citizens also! Not just the runners. :)
I ask federal authorities to keep investigating the cowardly bomber since they must have militant training somewhere to know how to shoot and how to assemble explosives. They were lead by some group or country for sure. They don't seem to be working alone...some leader is behind them.
It was a horrific tragedy that happened in Boston last week and my prayers go out to the many victims. I feel very bad about it any I can't imagine why anyone do such a thing. They walked right to where that that eight year old little boy and set the bomb near him? And putting all that shrapnel in the bombs intended to maim people? Then stuck around to watch the carnage? That is perfectly monstrous. But I also feel sorry for the younger brother (Dzhokhar) because in some ways he is also a victim. This is a bit blunt and i know some may not agree with me, but his teachers, his friends, his coach, all said he was a great guy and that they never could believe he could ever do such a thing. Furthermore its quite possible his older brother sort of roped him into it, He (the older brother) was 6'3" and six years older. That would most likely be pretty intimidating. Im not really trying to to defend him too much, he did it anyway whether or not his brother pushed him, it was his decision and he really screwed up his life on account of it. But i also couldn't believe some people said he should be publicly hanged. Is more death and revenge going to solve things? Also, this is certainly a terrorist attack, but why then do they not call the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting a terrorist attack? Or the shooting at the batman movie theater? It doesn't make any sense.
I can't believe that anyone would do this unless they're psychotic and need to be locked up or dealt with before they kill or injure anyone else. I think the criminal(s) should be turned over to the families of the victims, and they decide on the punishment.
The criminals that have done such a terrible deed need to be dealt with. The authorities should turn the living criminal over to the families of the victims, and they decide on the appropriate punishment.
