At 188,000 likes on Facebook and counting, Oswalt’s message is about hope.
Comedian Patton Oswalt’s note in response to the Boston Marathon bombing has gone viral on Facebook. And for good reason. Currently, his note has 188,000 likes.
Here’s part of it:
This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.
But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.
