We all try to make sense of tragedies. Senseless acts that harm, hurt, maim and take the the lives of innocent people are never logical events. And these instances of violence do not just effect those in harm’s way, they effect us all.
After the bombings at the Boston Marathon, people everywhere – who had no connection to those in Boston – were shaky, saddened and scared. One of the first big viral things that hit social media after the attacks was a quote from Mr. Rogers, it was simple and wise and just what we needed at the time. Sharing this quote was just one way to try to make sense of it all and to look at the horrible events with a bit of hope. We’ve collected nine other quotes about the senselessness of violence, about hope and about the power of humanity. Check them out here, which one is your favorite?
