Fireworks store not to blame for Marathon bombings

(Continued)

The first and most important use for the product we sell is celebrating the birth of our fine nation and I don’t believe that we should not advertise or sell our product because some disgusting individual with a diseased mind chose to do what he and his brother did. That would be letting the terrorists win. Maybe we should have closed Logan International because terrorists chose to fly out of there on Sept. 11, 2001. Is this really what people want, to let them win by changing the American way of life? Let’s also not forget the nails and pressure cookers, etc., that were used in the construction of their deadly bombs. Are you asking that those companies stop advertising the sale of their product? This would include all lumber yards and thousands of retail businesses. If any of you are using common sense, then I would think not. We are a great company with many fine, upstanding individuals employed here. We are all proud Americans who refuse to let terrorism stop our way of life.
