Boston and Baghdad – we risk to help

One of the most moving aspects of the Boston Marathon bombing is that swiftly after the bombing, runners, who are very similar to regular people, rushed toward danger to help the injured.  We humans really LIKE each other.  I am reminded of WIKILEAKS “Collateral Murder” video wherein even knowing there was an armed US helicopter hovering overhead people still rushed to help the wounded.  The US shot the helpers too but the point is they were willing to risk even death by American gunners to give aid.  What does that tell us about the strength of our connections to each other?  Yay for our side!
