Bombers 'don't get to win'

(Continued)

The headlines are already starting to fade and life returns to its normal routine for most of us, but for survivors who were directly impacted by the bombings, things will never be the same. We should keep them in our hearts and be there to support them.

As for Remy Lawler, her plan for next year’s Patriots Day is perhaps the best indicator of her spirit. She plans to go to the Marathon.

“Yes, I will be there. There’s no way I’m not going to be there. It’s going to take a while to get back to Boylston [Street] — to see the spot where I was standing. But I’m not going to let these stupid boys ruin the Boston Marathon for me. They don’t get to win, they lose.”
