“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

I have never seen a city come together in the way that Boston has during this past year. Cowards thought they could break us, but they proved to have greatly underestimated the pride and compassion that links the people of Boston together. We’re a stronger city now. Heroism takes true form in the first responders, civilians, and runners who after running 26.2 miles ran 2 more to donate blood for victims. My thoughts and prayers go out to the families of Krystle Campbell, Sean Collier, Lu Lingzi, and Martin Richard. My heart is as heavy today as it was when I stood there and took these pictures last year. I am so proud to call Boston my home today and everyday. One year stronger.

I am not an American.

But I have become as fond of America as I am my home country and I believe in it.

Everyone involved in the investigation of the Boston bombing – the FBI, Boston police, state police, anyone who was able to provide even the smallest bit of information to authorities – all contributed to finding the suspect a mere four days after the disaster occurred.

If this man is innocent, I trust you will find proof of his innocence. Iif he is guilty, I trust you will find proof of his guilt and mete out just punishment.

Investigative organizations at every level have made quick work of this and I cannot express how relieved I am. Thank you for your work here at home.

Lingzi Lu, Martin Richard and Krystle Campbell, R.I.P.

their names and faces might not be known, but their killers names and faces are. These four individuals’ death came from the result of the Boston Marathon Bombing on April 15, 2013.Here are their names and bits of facts:(sorry about the sudden boldness throught half the post,. I have no no idea what happened :O )

Sean Collier: did not die from the result of the bomber but from the hands of one of the bombers. Died from multiple gunshot wounds after a shoot out with one of the bombers. He was popular at the MIT campus. I believe his shot killed one of the bombers.His brother is a NASCAR team employee. He was born to be a cop.

(sorry I dont have more) But learn the victims instead of the suspects!
