Well done to the people of Boston and the authorities
and all emergency services involved.
I think it's a real shame.
Here were two young men with a unique opportunity to
live and study and work in one of the greatest cities in
the world and they threw it all away with this ludicrous
act of insane violence.
Now one is dead and the other has ruined his life and
will forever be a figure of hatred.
Very very sad.
The people of Boston can breathe a sigh of relief now
that this terrible incident has ended. My heart goes out
to all who suffered. The wonderful city of Boston has
become a second home to a great many Irish people.
I am very sure that they along with the native people
of Boston have the resilience to overcome this tragedy
and show the world once again how proud they can be
as a vibrant community. A great beacon of light for others.
