After Monday's horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon, many stories came out of people stepping up to help out the victims in the midst of all the chaos.
People could be seen running to help others immediately after the first bomb went off. Many marathon runners, who had just completed the race, ran straight to local hospitals to donate blood, just after crossing the finish line. And local Boston residents offered up their homes to people who became stranded after streets were being shut down.
Despite the terrible scene, It seemed like the good stories kept showing up. Actor / comedian Patton Oswalt posted a great comment
on to his Facebook page about this, declaring to anyone who would commit such a heinous act that "the good outnumber you, and we always will." You can read his full statement here
Gavin, however, could not disagree with Patton Oswalt more. Saying that no matter how much good people do, it will never be enough to overtake the affects bad and the apathetic. Listen to him talk about Patton's comments here:
