The past week has been very hard on many of us here in New Hampshire and throughout New England. The Boston Marathon is a significant event for many Granite Staters. Some run the marathon, some go to watch, others enjoy the day off from work. For the hard-working Boston Police, Fire and EMS Departments, this week has been one that they will never forget.
Over the last week, thousands have showed their support for the hard work of all the Boston area first responders. Even before the bombing, hundreds of Boston area first responders were working on Patriots Day as part of the annual Boston Marathon. As the first bomb went off, police and firefighters (and many citizens) ran into the blast area to help the wounded.
Those first responders worked from 1 a.m. on Friday morning – when the hunt for the two bombers erupted in a fierce firefight – through until late in the evening when the younger brother was eventually captured in Watertown.
The dedication of these public employees has been commended over the past week with many Facebook and Twitter images with the tag #BostonStrong.
This is what disturbs me: That after all the hard work and dedication from the public employees of all the local police departments, the FBI and Homeland Security, one New Hampshire State Rep sends out a Facebook post that the Boston bombing was a Government Black Op terrorist attack.
