Obama tried to comfort those affected by the Boston tragedy at an interfaith service dedicated to the three people killed and 176 injured in twin bombings at Monday's Boston Marathon on Thursday, USA Today said.
Obama declared that Boston "will run again," News Press said.
"We may be momentarily knocked off our feet," Obama said. "But we'll pick ourselves up. We'll keep going. We will finish the race." USA Today reported.
"This time next year, on the third Monday in April, the world will return to this great American city to run harder than ever and cheer even louder for the 118th Boston Marathon," he declared according to News Press.
Sustaining an uplifting theme, Obama encouraged those affected by the Boston bombing to optimistically look to the future and know that [we] will come out of this stronger, News Press let on.
