fuckmegentlywithawinonaryder:

things to keep in mind:

-you do not know the religion of the people who planted these bombs

-you do not know the race of the people who plated these bombs

-you do not know the nationality or the political motives of the people who planted these bombs

-tumblr is not a credible source

-terrorism tries to instill fear and hysteria in people. keep calm

-your political party is NOT relevant right now

Boston. Fucking horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, “Well, I’ve had it with humanity.”

But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, “The good outnumber you, and we always will.

the sweetest thing: hi i live in boston and here's what's been reported on so far

cresselia:

  • there were two explosions in copley square near the end of the finish line
  • a reliable news channel here reported on a third, controlled explosion, so it was likely that a bomb squad found the explosion and set it off themselves
  • the people who run the marathon have called the explosions a bomb, but NOTHING has been confirmed by the police
  • 22 people have been injured and 2 people have been confirmed dead— injuries are severe and include loss of limbs in some cases
  • yes, there was a fire in a wing of the jfk library that occurred almost immediately after the explosions were set off, but no one knows if they incidents connected yet
  • the victims have started arriving at the hospital and are being treated for their injuries now
  • the train and most streets are being closed off
  • the fbi is on its way to the site of the explosion right now
  • the president HAS been notified of the explosion 
  • if you live in/near boston, please just stay as far away from the explosion site as you can and allow people to do their jobs. if you have family in the area that you’re worried about, call them rather than going down to check on them.
  • a reliable feed for those who don’t live in boston can be found here https://twitter.com/BostonGlobe

***UPDATE: it was confirmed that the explosions were homemade bombs

I'm not an overly religious person, but I was raised Roman Catholic. I was never confirmed because, while I believe in the message of the bible (don't be a dick and the world will be a better place), I cannot condone a lot of the actions that the Church has taken over the centuries, but that's a different story. I go to church on Christmas and Easter now, which makes my Mother sad (I really am sorry, Mom), but this year is different. I don't know why, but someone has been making bomb threats at my Church/Elementary school. This year, I'm almost afraid to go to the Christmas Eve Children's Mass. If people have problems with the Church, or the Catholic faith, I get it. I'm not saying people are not entitled to their beliefs, but when someone has such a problem with a system of belief that they are willing to threaten children, and people who have probably done nothing to harm them, I cannot comprehend it. I don't think I want to; at best, it's selfish and childish; at worst, it's idiotic. I don't know why someone is threatening to blow up the church that I have gone to since I was a child, and that my Mother went to when she was a child, but I gotta say, it's scaring the shit out of me.
 I thought about trying to talk my Mother out of going to mass tomorrow, but then I realized she would go anyway because she's my Mother and that's what she does. I thought about staying  home myself, but then I realized that, if my family is going to be there and something happens to them, I would never be able to live without them. If there's one thing I know about myself, it's that I am nothing without my family. So I'm going to go tomorrow, and if I die, I just wanted to let everyone out there who is a friend or a family member that I love you dearly, more than words can say, in fact, and I hope that you will live long and wonderful lives, and have fabulous adventures. 
But mostly, I really hope that I don't get blown up by some imbecilic asshole on Christmas Eve because he has some deranged obsession with proving his hatred for a belief system by murdering children and other potentially innocent people. Because that would be a stupid reason to die, and I want to die for a LEGITIMATE FUCKING REASON, GODDAMNIT.
