As the terror unfolded during yesterday's Boston -- one question.
Why does somebody do this -- keep tableau is a psychiatrist and part of -- medical she's she's here at -- she's also a Bostonians and joins us live from Boston.
Keep -- weren't here they called they call it terrorism because it terrorize his people.
It does indeed and listen this city I come to you from liberty square in Boston from the studio there.
And this city is not the same as it was just.
Fifteen hours ago.
I know that folks are leery of driving and there where you've gone back to work.
These wounds take time to heal physically they take even more time Steve to heal emotionally and psychologically.
This in some ways.
Is a devastating event on the order of 9/11 because of the fact that it took place on a street corner not not a massive iconic building.
Not in Washington DC or New York but yet another city now scarred by violence it's unpredictable and can strike anywhere.
Right and good for example in Boston -- -- about Lexington Concord you think about all the history there the Freedom Trail the Boston represents the beginning of our revolution.
And I also see those symbolic international flags all the countries represented there.
It -- that if this is like.
Our carnival Ford terrorists.
Absolutely but Brian the sad thing is that freedom is everywhere in America and hands everywhere is a target we have to understand that the light that shines forth from a country like ours attracts darkness.
That's why they attacked us.
Because of our good and valued ideas that we embrace so fervently.
Look -- -- great universities and so many cities around the United States there -- great sports stadiums.
This can happen sadly anywhere and as -- say in my piece on foxnews.com.
Liberty is a marathon.
You have to be in it for the long haul.
I think you make a good point -- -- we chat -- I mean I've heard before when tragedy strikes.
A piece of advice is remember we are what you stand for just try to remember who you are what you stand for and you -- in your piece straight the target of those who hate freedom is anyone who loves it.
Any time we need to hold onto that today to realize it's what we love most about ourselves.
That makes them do this to us.
-- Megan -- so many cases even in the cases where people prey upon children.
Why well because -- innocent because they're full of life.
And in a country that hundreds of years later is still a young nation embracing ideas and ideals that.
-- new to the world in certain ways we're going to attract.
And violent people because of -- march toward freedom and are clinging to him.
So that's right we should remind ourselves it's not anything we did.
We shouldn't get Stockholm syndrome and think that we've done something wrong to the world know we've done good and decent things and people don't like us for.
Sure it can keep you started by saying that you're you're downtown in -- right now and some people them.
In your town are afraid to go into the downtown area they are but you know -- -- it hearkens back to a 9/11.
If you stop doing what you -- in your everyday life the terrorists win.
That's absolutely true and it would be number one it wouldn't be.
Something that honors the mathematical probabilities these events thankfully are still very rare.
And your likelihood of being.
Hurt by them is exceedingly rare -- with respect to all those folks who were hurt here in Boston.
But the second reality is exactly what you've alluded to.
You can't be paralyzed by terror or the terrorists.
And this can happen anywhere what are we to -- to go to no movies to not assemble -- basketball games where -- our kids are competing.
At theaters no of course we will because that's the American way.
Sooner or later the terrorists will realize you can't defeat us on street corners with single bombs.
We are a movement a culture is set of ideas you can't bomb away ideas.
Right what about this and is probably one of the tougher questions yet and yet.
B 25 it's reported -- to 25 and thirty people have lost at least one limb.
They want to watch a run in the marathon and they come back missing in on or -- leg what do you say to them doctor Abdullah.
Well if if any one of those people were in my office I would number one.
Tell them I don't know fully what they're feeling right now the depths of their pain.
Secondly I would say that they have a race to run that metaphors are very powerful and life.
And that if you're marathon runner and you were there for that day or you know what it's like to be in America and you -- there cheering on that sport.
Then you have it -- you.
To take the race to a different level in your life and to save yourself what do what I need to do now to honor.
The fact that this has happened to me and to make of my life even more than I ever imagined.
And I would say I'm gonna ally with younger and ally with -- in that race let me be your partner.
And I'm sure family members friends.
Employers and others will be people's partners in making it even more of their lives minus a -- Sorry doctor keep double read his column Fox News -- come keep thank you.
This is my second time and -- they are the survivors I -- injured though they aren't they survived.
What we now know was terror attack on this country --
