Amidst the aftermath of Monday's tragic bombing in Boston, this evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomed a pair of New England men – Kevin Cullen and John Mixon – each charged with sharing their insight into the events associated with the explosions, as well as the spirit of the city moving forward:
"I was sad yesterday, I'm angry today, and I got that sense from the city today talking to people. We will never be the same," said Cullen, a columnist for the "Boston Globe" who penned a piece entitled "A perfect Marathon day, then the unimaginable" on Tuesday.
"This is a very tough town. We take only three things seriously here, and that's sports, politics, and revenge," continued Cullen. "I think it's going to take a lot more than what was done yesterday to knock a town like Boston out. And I really sense that across the city today, that people were angry and that people were absolutely determined."
Mixon, meanwhile, a veteran of the Vietnam War and the Director of "Run for the Fallen Maine," explained his perspective having been standing atop the first row of bleachers when the first bomb detonated:
"I just immediately thought it was a terrorist attack. I kind of lost my balance on the step, and my immediate thought was my daughter was heading down to meet us down there. And I just quickly grabbed the phone to call her," he told Piers Morgan. "Then there was such confusion that I actually jumped over the fence ... I was starting to rip the fence down."
Watch the clip, and listen further, as Cullen goes on to explain the attitude of the people in Boston, going so far as to suggest that the city "gave the middle finger" to whomever is responsible for Monday's terror attack.
