At a loss for words on this one.
Boston Marathon bombing victim lashes out at officials for misplaced wreath. Wow
She is right to be frustrated; however, there are more productive ways to get results than lashing out on social media.
This particular woman has been seeking fame from the tragedy since Day 1. How dare she have the audacity to call out all of Boston like that - a city that gave her so much (money through the One Fund; entry to Boston Marathon for life; support and air time, and of course the thoughtfulness to acknowledge the tragedy with a memorial). This rant was worse than childish, and just paints her as a spoiled brat who is after attention. Did she not realize that the Richard family placed the wreath in front of the "correct" spot earlier in the day? (I would argue that it doesn't need to be placed in the exact spot of the bomb to be meaningful - since the radius for injuries was so large). Last year Adrianne ran the marathon, along with several other survivors. However, she managed to claim the spotlight and even got a shout out from Obama while the others (who finished in incredible time) basically got nothing.
I know I haven't experienced what she has gone through, but I was at the finish line that day in 2013 and witnessed it all, just to the right of the first bomb. Having watched her antics over the years, it's clear what she's after here.
Someone on the comments section of the article said that we should not judge the woman if we haven't been in her shoes. I think she means *shoe*. Wondering if I should point this out to her.
