Wonderful.

    Amazing: Boston Marathoners reportedly run to hospital to donate blood

    Right on!!!

    With all due respect, as a runner of 38 years, I wouldn’t expect them to do anything less.

      Perhaps, but it is still heartwarming to see one’s fellow men and women selflessly coming to their aid. Still makes me proud.

      • bo1921

        I don’t disagree. It’s the honorable thing to do. I am proud of them. I would be disappointed with anything less. If you don’t have honor, you have nothing.

    As much as their hearts are in the right place, I don’t know if it’s a great idea for the runners to donate blood right after running a marathon. Their blood is probably screwed up from the effects of running a marathon.

    Just when I begin to despair humanity … a small community of people give me hope again.

    Seems like that’s the only time when people will donate blood. What about the other 364 days of the year?

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      Too soon after the last time. When the mobile blood bank comes to work there’s a line to give blood.

    Pick another day to be a blithering idiot.

    Wait, you mean it is a choice … I thought they were born that way!

    Let this tool be a blithering idiot and sneer at the scene before him. The rest of us will do what we all should do – find a way to help our fellow men and women without judgement.
