A little ways back, someone had posted a trolling thread about the Marathon Bombing.

They included a very graphic photo of Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs.

Mr. Bauman has given a few interviews lately and he is doing as well as one could expect for having lost both legs in a terrorist attack.

He was part of the opening ceremony of the Bruins Game. A much better image to remember him by than the post bombing one.

Maybe this is tangential to PO, but maybe not. The personal can become political and the political personal. A number of the bombing victims will live everyday personally impacted by the political terrorist statement.

Likewise, living our personal lives in a manner consistent with our values of freedom, justice and the like can be the most powerful politics of all.
