I am always tempted on days like these to weep for humanity.  Because I know tragedies like the Boston bombing are only a drop of water in the never-ending tidal wave of human violence, because of the inevitable pain and suffering that follows….
It uplifts me to remember that humanity has many faces.  There are those who seek destruction.  But most people seek creation.  The people who ran toward, not away, from those in the blast to offer a hand, those who are offering their homes to the displaced, those who are donating blood.  Most people are helpers.
