After running 26 miles in a major marathon, one would expect to be greeted by family and friends as they congratulate you on such an amazing feat. However, this year some runners were greeted by bombs.
The Boston Marathon Bombings will go down in history as one of the most gruesome acts of terror in U.S. history.
However, history proves that whenever a major act of terrorism occurs, the United States unites and builds a stronger bond. As a Muslim-American, I condemn the acts in Boston and pray for the victims and their families who were involved in this heinous act. As President Barack Obama stated in his address after the attacks, we must give the perpetrators the justice they deserve.
