Patton Oswalt’s Facebook Response To Boston Marathon Bombings Goes Viral


In the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings Monday, Patton Oswalt’s heartfelt response on his Facebook page has gone viral, a reminder that good people outnumber the evil.

The comedian admitted that he “had it with humanity” after the September 11 attacks, but felt that the people responsible for terror do not represent all of humanity. He said about the person or persons responsible for the attacks: “If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet.”

Oswalt adds that most of the world will stand up “against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak.”

He closed his Facebook message to his fans by saying: “So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will.’”

Since Oswalt posted the message on his Facebook page, it has been shared more than 204,000 times and has nearly 272,000 likes.
