Dave Zirin: Prayers for Boston, Baghdad, Mogadishu

"I have a friend from Vietnam who always reminds me that Vietnam is a country, not a war," The Nation's Dave Zirin says, "and I hope we remember the Boston Marathon as a place with history that goes back to 1897, and not just the site of a national and international tragedy." Appearing on Democracy Now! Zirin reflects on the long life, enduring legacy and global reach of the Marathon.
