The Boston bombings brought out incredible acts of kindness. These are just a few.
In the first few minutes after the bombing, good people came out of the woodwork to help. Tyler Dodd, a vet with scars of his own, helped talk Victoria McGrath through her pain. She, in turn, asked him to go help others who were in greater need.
In the days that followed, DoSomething.org took the lead with their #focusontheheroes campaign, saying, “We will not be sharing the names or the pictures of the alleged Boston Marathon Bombers. They wanted to be famous, they got their wish, but we won’t be adding to that. Instead we will be focusing on the heroes and survivors of the horrific attacks. They deserve our attention, not the evil people who hurt them.”
