Phrase of the Day: HE'S RIGHT

The bombings at the Boston Marathon three days ago were horrific.  Over 180 persons injured, including over a dozen amputations performed, and three persons killed.  The three persons killed were 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, 23-year-old Lu Lingzi, and 8-year-old Martin Richard.

I could say a lot of things about these bombings, most of it along the lines of This is terrible, When is this going to end?, and Haven't we seen enough?  It all seems inadequate.  

This picture below, however, does not seem inadequate.  It is of Martin Richard, who was killed in the bombing (and whose six-year-old sister lost her leg and mother suffered a serious brain injury), holding a poster he made in school.

It reads:
No more hurting people      Peace
