Comment on "Xi expresses concern for Chinese victims in Boston blasts" (China Daily, April 18)
I was saddened to hear about the death of a Chinese student in the Boston Marathon bombings. The graduate student of Boston University was a resident of Shenyang, Liaoning province, and was one of the three victims of the Boston bombings.
The Boston Marathon is one of the oldest marathons in the world and people compete in it both to prove their competence and show their love for the city and its people. And the bombings have come as a shock to people not only in Boston, but also in the rest of the world.
I hope the bombing survivors recover soon, physically and emotionally. Terrorism is a crime against humanity and we should work together to fight against it.
