With the Boston Marathon attack and ricin scare coming in the same week, this was the first time since 2001 that the U.S. experienced events similar to those of Sept. 11, according to New York Times reporter Sheryl Gay Stolberg. "The bombing at the marathon goes to the very heart of the question that was raised by 9/11, which is, what does it mean to live in a free society? How hunkered down do we need to be?" Stolberg said.
