Thoughts on Boston – A Day of Terror, a Day of Courage

By Jay Sekulow1366124351000

As we mourn those who died yesterday and pray for those who are now battling through horrific injuries, I am thankful that we serve a God who is righteous and merciful. 

It is part of God’s great mercy that on a day where we were reminded once again that evil is all too real and present, we were reminded even more that this nation is still full of men and women who demonstrate courage and compassion in the face of danger.  By all accounts, the first responders, bystanders, and even uninjured runners responded immediately to the bomb blasts, with the first responders doing what they do best – run straight into harm’s way to deliver aid. 

Some runners ran immediately to hospitals, moments after finishing a 26-mile race, to give blood to help save the injured.

Boston medical professionals responded magnificently.  Press reports described hospitals that responded with calm and competence to an unexpected mass casualty event.  None were overwhelmed.  All gave outstanding care.  Other countries struggle to respond to violent attacks, but the people of Boston rose to the occasion.  They deserve our praise.

Today, as I pray for the victims, I also pray that evil will be defeated and deterred by a response that is as swift and decisive as possible.  I am reminded of the words of the psalmist:

My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries;
    my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.

And for those who are suffering:

Blessed are those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.

May God bless the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.  May God help us find those responsible for this horrific attack.

Social Media: The World’s Newest Weapon

By Nicole Smith1485804622088

A gentlemen’s war was once fought at a meeting on the battlefield, standing face-to-face and barrel-to-barrel, as each soldier was shot down one by one. Where the victor was decided either by surrender, retreat, or whoever had the lowest body count at the battle’s end. Since then there has been an...

It Appears “Lone Wolf” Jihadists Run in a Pack

By Matthew Clark1484682422612

Yesterday the news broke that the wife of the Orlando terrorist, Omar Mateen, has been arrested on charges in connection with the jihadist attack that left 49 dead and more than 50 injured. It has been absurdly asserted for months – by President Obama and his leftist allies with their heads in the...
