I feel the warmth from friends and families: there were more than 20 messages from facebook, linkedins, twitters from all over the world to ask about my situation in Boston. They are all friends who never been to Boston so they don't know that Copley square is a well-known shopping area and only few who are affluent enough would live there. Saying so, I was lucky enough to decide not to return books to BPL central that day. But I was shock by the whole thing. Some describe it as the most devastating terrorist attach since 9-11. I have to concur. Even though we can't establish a direct link between the two suspect and any terrorist organizations yet, the event is at least be inspired by on-line instruction on how to make improvised pressure cooker bomb.
To even now, no one could clearly explain the motives of the suspect. Family members are giving confusing answers on psychological profiles of the suspects. It's hard to judge at this point and may be we should hear more from the authorities.
My condolences to the families of all victims, to the transit police officer who died at the front-line, to all who was injured. I sincerely hope the Boston authority can soon help us understand why the tragedy happens.
