Keep Calm And Carry On

Me
I have no personal knowledge or expertise to contribute to the Boston bombing discussion. I will say that most of what we are seeing in the news is uninformed speculation, guesses and at best partial pictures from bystanders.

One of the best responses I have seen is this from a 78-year-old runner. You've seen the video - he's the guy who was knocked off of his feet by the first blast. Well, he got up (with help from a race volunteer) walked over the finish line, and walked to his hotel.

He kept calm and carried on. In the dark days of WWII, Great Britain, facing the most serious invasion threat since 1588, somebody came up with a propaganda poster to be displayed if the invasion happened. It didn't, so nobody saw it for decades. But it fits my mood today.
