Last week, I spoke with FoxNews Boston about the stories of the first responders at the Boston Marathon Bombings. Almost every responder with whom I spoke said that they fully expected a 3rd bomb to go off–possibly right where they were working–yet they stayed at their posts, and fought for the lives of others. They were the heroes that day, as is every patient that is struggling to heal.
