    Claire, this is a beautifully written and heartfelt response to the Boston bombings. I think it took enormous courage for you to write that “what bothers me most of all is the person causing all this fear — the terrorist currently responsible for four deaths and almost 200 injuries — is reportedly my age. I want to hate him, yet I find myself hoping he is caught alive, not only so that our country receives the answers it needs, but also to spare such a young life.” That paragraph is one I think many of us are thinking but you said it and I think that adds valuably to the national conversation. I also value the way that you stayed in the moment as a reporter — hearing what the homeless man had to say to you in Boston Commons, noting your own reactions to ordinary events. You have the habit of mind of a real reporter! Please keep writing on this important issue.
