Boston strong reflects the heroic actions from the first responders to the average civilian that ran to the bombing sites to help others out, putting their own lives in danger. Every hospital at one point In the day had reports of bombs and "suspicious" packages at their facilities but everyone stayed and did their job. We picked ourselves up and had a hockey game a couple of days later. Not sure all of those people hid in fear. That's what makes us strong.

NOW IF SOMEONE DROVE A PLANE OR PLANTED A BOMB IN THE FERTILIZER PLANT, THAT IS A WAY DIFFERENT STORY
X2 what im saying is texas was an accident and its not forgotten as well as all other recent incidents, its just the bombing was an attack against all of america so its a very touchy subject for everyone. And it wasnt all about everyone hiding inside while law enforcement found them, if you watch the video when the bomb went off people were running toward the explosion to help those that were injurred.

That is just human nature for most. Heroic would have been going out and doing something rather let someone tell you have know rights to your own property. Granted some people don't handle stuff the way others do. Yes Boston came together in a time of tragedy but they let their freedom go and became cowards. Sorry if I offend anyone.

They didnt let their freedom go, it wasnt mandatory to stay inside and most of boston didnt stay inside, they let law enforcement do what they were trained to do.

When they say boston strong theyre not talking about physically, i mean everyones not gonna go out on the street with a gun looking for the guy, its emotionally, everyone came together and stayed "strong" throughout what happened

What about Watertown? I realize that isnt Boston but they let their freedom fly out the door. If I knew that SOB was in my town, I wouldn't coward in my house. I would be searching hi and low for him wanting to get him a piece of lead. Screw what the cops or government say heroic is standing up and acting not hiding behind close doors.

Let me add I support Boston and their efforts. I also support Texas. I just don't support having their rights/freedoms taken just because they are looking for a guy, everyone just sitting there and taking it.

And people wonder why the government controls so much of there lives. Its because people who think like the statement above. Its called organization, like search and rescue teams of the Pacific Northwest. BAND TOGETHER! Don't just stand there.

What the hell you think this country was founded on? No its called not being a welfare ridden government mule. I'm in the carpenters union where we band together for what we believe in and what is right. Its just that city folk are scared because they have drank to much kool aid! They can't think for themselves and they believe what the government tells them.

This in no way reflects upon all city folk. Also it if you receive welfare and try to support your family there isn't a thing wrong with it but if you do try and think the government owes you everything do us tax payers a favor move out of country so we don't have to pay for you!

I would like to add that its sad that this guy will probably get life in prison with 3 meals a day, a bed, and better healthcare than most of us have. That is a problem that we can all relate to.

There is the attitude to have next band together take a stand. Call a buddy and have them call a buddy that's how it begins.
