The Boston Marathon tragedy reminds us that good will always triumph evil

I don’t get it. I don’t understand why someone would do this. In fact, I don’t understand any kind of violence like this.

What good does it do when you set off explosives or hurt a mass amount of people like this? I don’t get it. I don’t want to get it. I don’t want to understand what kind of sick, twisted mindset one has to be in to plan such an occurrence.

But through these kind of evil acts, I am always reminded that good will always triumph evil. No matter what kind of evil finds its way into our lives, there are way more good people that will stop it. We might suffer in the process, but we’re stronger because of it.

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’ To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers – so many caring people in this world.”

— Mister Fred Rogers

As I watched all the new unfold and keeping my eyes on Twitter, I just saw so many people doing good. So many people were helping others, trying to bring relief to a shocking incident. That’s why I will never lose faith in this world. Despite all our differences as humans, we are still humans. We care for each other. In our hearts, we are good people.

Sometimes one or two people every now and then don’t get it and harm one another. But there are enough people out there that care and want to bring good into this world. That’s what I saw today. That’s what we still need in this world.

I pray for those who died. I pray for those who were seriously injured. I pray for all the families and friends affected and all those involved in the rescue. We have to remember that the good of these people will help us get up, heal and stand once again.
