Yesterday’s tragedy in Boston serves to remind us all of the risks of democracy. Letting people believe what they want to believe, the problem lies with the extremes of these beliefs, whether it’s the right to bear arms, or the belief in an interpretation of an almighty. To nurture freedom we have to take the risk.
The tears will not cease for the families of those who so needlessly died, but the world will go on bearing another scar that has wounded America once more;
So let us not forget, but let us go on and take the risk – despite the price.
