That beautiful Bostonian benevolence was seen in a cowboy hat-wearing peace activist coming to the rescue of a victim, in local cops quickly rushing to the scene to provide help, in medics working arduously to ensure that that the injured will live, and in highly trained and constantly vigilant soldiers using their strength and experience to aid private citizens they fought to protect overseas. While these stories are merely a small handful of examples, there were countless heartwarming displays of generosity, kindness, and magnanimity in Boston last week - certainly not enough to publish in a single blog post. The benevolence of Boston had the most desirable outcome too. The stories of heroism set an example and consequently became the impetus of an outpouring of selflessness across the world. That became evident in at least two instances early this week. Police in Boston received scores of food shipments from cities around the globe while the Chicago Tribune sent the Boston Globe words of gratitude and, more importantly from one's perspective, tons of pizza. Ultimately, elements of the media will obsessively focus on the backgrounds, biographies, and motivations of the suspects. While examining all of that is important, the acts of kindness and love seen in the benevolence of Boston should be cherished and celebrated. The capacity for good in the human spirit is a beautiful thing. In an ironic but admirable way, it often manifests itself in the aftermath of the worst circumstances imaginable. In fact, the pictures of rescuers that came out of Boston this week reminded me of the iconic images of firefighters and first responders risking their lives in New York on September 11, 2001 so that many others would live. Time and time again, these tragedies have seemingly proven Mr. Rogers and his mother correct every time. If there is any important lesson to be gleaned from the Boston attacks, it is indeed that: "look for the helpers; you will always find people who are helping."
