The Boston Marathon, a celebrated event that has been around for over 100 years. So why would somebody or some people attempt to destroy the spirits of the runners and audience? Was it the work of an angry person or a group that was just mad and didn’t realize exactly what they were doing or were the people just plain evil?
Based off of historic events, i.e. the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995 and the horrific acts committed on September 11, 2001, it could go either way. Immaturity exists all throughout the world but evil, on the other hand, is a lot more rare. With all this talk going around about immaturity and evil, where does the Boston Marathon come into play?
In one very infamous instance, 9/11, a group of men were carrying out orders they believed to be the right thing to do. They were told that by performing these acts they would receive praise from their native country. This wasn’t necessarily the case. One man, the leader, wanted to insert fear into a country for his own reasons. Immaturity.
Another example, the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995, can also go to show how some people can act when they get mad. Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols, who were mad for their on reasons, decided to take their anger out in their own way, by blowing up a building. They probably didn’t understand to the full extent what kind of harm they were bringing people which is again, immature.
People will always do things to just try to get attention from other people. Certain ones take it to another level but when is enough, enough? Proving a point is one thing but hurting innocent people in the process is another, and that is taking it too far and enough.
