A Call To Post. A Call To Help Us Remember The True Heroes.

Stop the madness! Quit inadvertently glorifying the cowardly Boston Marathon bombers by posting their pictures with every Facebook post, blog post or every news story, cheering their capture. Don’t get me wrong. I’m thrilled we got the bastards. But I don’t want to remember their faces. I don’t care what they looked like. Their lives mean nothing to me.

Let’s remember these faces. The heroes. The victims. The winners.

The ones who matter.

Feel free to re-post. Or write your own post glorifying the real winners in this horrific event. And post images. Lots and lots of images of the victims and the heroes.

Let their faces be the ones we remember.

  1. Well said, Jane. And a reminder that goodness prevails.

  2. True. I’m so tired of hearing about those two, their lives, their families, thier schooling. Sad that we don’t spend that much time on the 4 dead and the scores of injured. Though tonight Anderson Cooper did a long interview with a dance instructor who lost her foot..that was inspirational. She says she’s going to teach him how to dance. I hope she does.

  3. I did have their faces up on my blog before they were caught. That is one reason the FBI posts them and puts them out there. But, once they were caught, I didn’t add any more.

    Thank you for recognizing and remembering the victims! :)
