10 Things From the Boston Marathon Tragedy That Will Warm Your Heart

In all the chaos of yesterday at the Boston Marathon, there are some heart warming stories that show there are still some good people out there.

1. Those that helped out others

A picture of Team RWB in action today in Boston, taking his shirt off to provide first aid to the injured. We are posting these pictures & videos as they come in because we feel it’s important to remind one another of the positive things happening amid the chaos and the evil. We must focus on the positive and keep praying for those killed today, those injured, their families….the first responders and the medical personnel working right now to save lives and limbs. It’s not easy to focus on the positive right now, but here is an example of selfless service that we can all look to for hope and inspiration. — with Sydney Caine Freeman.

2. The Boston Police Department

7. Man literally holds artery to save victim’s life

The man in the cowboys hat is Carlos Arredondo. He is an immigrant citizen of the U.S. who lost his son in Iraq and is now a peace activist and speaker. When the explosions happened, you can see that he did not hesitate to run towards the chaos and help, obviously trying to get this poor man out of there and to hold a tourniquet on one of his severed legs. Later, he was being interviewed, visibly shaking from shock and holding an American flag, soaked in the blood of other people. Carlos Arredondo’s selflessness and bravery should be known and applauded.

There are many stories out there. Ordinary men and women helping out those in need, and many will go unnoticed or forgotten. There were many that went towards the danger not knowing if there is another bomb or not and we at ViralRead thank them.
