Boston Bombing Survivor Thanks Boston Bomber
As Eric Larson of Mashable illustrates in today’s post on Rebekah DiMartino – Boston Bombing survivor, “Hours after taking the stand, DiMartino (nee Gregory) posted a powerful open letter to Tsarnaev on Facebook.”
And powerful it WAS!
DiMartino illustrates the fear created by Tsarnaev, but that’s not the compelling part. Anyone can cause fear. What’s compelling is when she starts expressing the good, the positive things that “won over” despite the fear.
“And I think that’s the ironic thing that happens when someone intends something for evil. Because somehow, some way, it always ends up good… in so many ways, you saved my life. Because now, I am so much more appreciative of every new day I am given. And now, I get to hug my son even tighter than before, blessed that he is THRIVING, despite everything that has happened.”
