The dastardly criminal attacks of two Islamists at the participants and spectators of the Boston Marathon makes us, Iranian-Americans recoil in revulsion and grief. Revulsion at the ideology that transforms humans into despicable beasts motivating them to commit indescribably abominable acts of atrocity. Grieve for those innocent victims, including an eight-year old child, who lost their life. We also vicariously feel the pain of injuries inflicted on scores of others. We, Iranian-Americans deeply love our adopted home. We believe in our ancient admonition: children of Adam are members of the same body; when a member is hurt, other members are pained. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and the families of this wanton terrorist act.
