It would be hard to believe anyone is unaware at this point of what’s happened in Boston, and many people have probably overdosed already on the 24-hour news coverage of the tragedy.  But, to be honest, I just didn’t want to post anything else today, or even pretend to ignore the impact this incident has had on the direct victims and our country as a whole.

So, here are four videos that capture a variety of perspectives on what happened in Boston this week:

The first video is a short AP clip that includes witness interviews and footage of the explosions.

Next are the President’s comments regarding this “act of terror.”

Here is the FBI video of the two “persons of interest.”

And finally, a tribute to the victims and First Responders.

Have a safe weekend.
