Mr. Breen’s cartoon isn’t as vulgar as Mr. Benson’s, but is still inaccurate. The devil wasn’t in the race. The devil had left his packages of death and destruction and walked far away to either watch it on the news or perhaps, as some pictures suggest, from a rooftop nearby. Mr. Breen is wrong to suggest the devil was part of those running. Those athletes, professional and amateur, were our neighbors from all over the world come to celebrate an event where the race is run for the joy of it, not for the rewards it offers.I particularly want to salute a 78 year old man that video showed being knocked down by the force of the blast. His knees buckled, he fell hard to the ground, but despite his exhaustion of having run all of those mile, despite the screams and smoke around him, and most of all, IN spite of the devil who had brought fear to a place of joy and triumph, this man- Biff Iffrig – FINISHED the race.To Mr. Iffrig, the responders, the victims, and the people of Boston, we should give honor and heartfelt prayers.Respectfully,C.
