This weekend was great for the healing of our nation after the tragedy in Boston. After a week of updates related to the terroristic bombing, we got to breathe a little. It was great to be able to focus on sporting events, TV shows and even reality TV. Thankfully, we were able to change the tone of Twitter and unwind a bit. There were so many good tweets of inspiration, comedy and good spirit this weekend. I’ve compiled some of the best ones and here they are.
Isn’t that how it always works?
