There were people at this trying to prove to themselves that they could do what they once considered impossible. And some psycho had to come out of the darkness and take it away from them.
I'm afraid attacks of this nature are not 'impossible'
I think impossible referred to runners with injuries who never thought they'd do a marathon, not to the explosions.

This is awful. Thank goodness the other bombs didn't go off. I'm not sure what the casualties are at JFK yet, but I hope this is over. Two people are dead and several others are critical. A lot of others are going to have their lives permanently changed, and not for the better.

Attacking people at a race. Insane.


Edit: Jim beat me to it.
That's exactly what I meant, guys. Glad you're here, RJ.

So many people who got hurt or were previously in bad physical shape come to the Boston Marathon to prove to themselves they could actually do something amazing like run 26 miles. To some people, it might not seem like much, but to people who have to fight to do it, it can be the world. And to see it taken away like that... it's sick.
