The American spirit will never be broken

On my run on Wednesday, people looked at me and treated me a little different, and I realized you can’t break the spirit of the American runner. As a runner, I know that the men and women who were hurt in Boston will prevail. Most will run soon. This I just know. You may not see smiles on their faces as they run; this is because the smiles are beaming in their hearts.

The American spirit is still strong. No cowardly act can take that away. This year I will run in honor of those killed or hurt in Boston. Most will be back. This I just know.
