Obama Tells Boston, Nation: ‘We Will Finish the Race’

[Los Angeles Times]

President Obama vowed Thursday that Americans will move beyond the Boston Marathon bomb attack by bringing the perpetrators to justice — and by refusing to live in fear.

“Yes, we will find you, and yes, you will face justice,” Obama said. “But more than that, our fidelity to our way of life, to our free and open society, will only grow stronger.”

Speaking at an interfaith service in Boston, Obama compared the country to the marathon runner in the orange tank top so clearly visible in video of Monday’s first blast, shown over and again in news coverage of the attack.

“We may be momentarily knocked off our feet,” Obama said. “But we’ll pick ourselves up. We’ll keep going. We will finish the race.”
