Voices Around Town

Since the Boston Marathon bombings, are you worried about going to public events?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Samson So.

"No, I will still go to events because by not going it makes such acts tolerable and more efficient."

Buzz Bonneau, San Francisco

"The probability of these bombings are pretty low. I used to live in Israel where stuff like this happened all the time. In my opinion, it's more dangerous to drive a car these days!"

David Gal, San Francisco

"No one can predict event acts of terrorism. The terrorists' actions are supposed to make us do things out of the ordinary. If I let them prevent me from carrying out things I'd like to do, that means they win."

Keehwan Her, San Francisco

"I refuse to live life afraid. You can be prepared but it shouldn't stop you from living life."

Brandon Moore, Mountain View

"It's a very small risk that we take. I also think it's important to push that to the back of your mind and still enjoy going to events."

Grant Rozeboom, Palo Alto
