Last Seen: Boston, MA
Awarded For: doing a yeoman's job during the Marathon bombing disaster

Yesterday was supposed to be a normal day during the Boston Marathon.

The 26-mile race has always been a huge event for the city, with people of virtually all nationalities coming over to endure the lengthy race throughout the town. But at 2:50 p.m., all that changed.

As runners were crossing the finish line, a huge explosion rocked the area. Shrapnel hit runners and spectators as police and first responders rushed to the scene. Boston Police Department ordered all shifts to cover as the bombings that occurred proved to be catastrophic.

At press time, there's at least two dead and 140 injured.

While we might or might not know who caused the disaster, we must thank the heroes in yesterday's disaster: the police, the EMTs and the doctors who are now working immense overtime to attend to those hurt in the melee. It's nothing short of sick regarding what happened, but at least the good thing is that there's more good people than bad, especially in a case like this. I hope whoever caused this will be brought to justice.

But in the meantime, if you helped somebody in Boston yesterday, hats off to you.
