(poems go here) Children, by standers, marathon runners, and victims of Boston:
You are strong.
Measure your strength not by wounds or scares,
Physically or mentally,
But by blessings counted.

You are strong.
Not just in a sense of ability and power,
But also comfort and faith.
Even in a tragic event that has injured many bodies,
Nothing can damage the courage that these heroes possess.

You are strong.
One never understands the significance of a positive outlook,
Until one sees the inspiration that is illustrates.
Tremendous spirits with great wisdom,
All unite as one in a time of need.

You are strong.
To see such a positive energy forced into a community
That was meant to be broken
Is a great example of how bravery and courageousness
Can empower people and show strength.
