The Omidi brothers, through their non-profit Civic Duty, applaud the efforts of the many displays of courage and heroism during last week’s terror event in Boston. In addition, they encourage citizens everywhere to be ever vigilant in reporting suspected terrorist activities to the authorities.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) April 27, 2013
Civic Duty, and co-founders Julian Omidi and Dr. Michael Omidi, join the United States and the world in gratitude that the city of Boston is now able to “stand-down” and begin to recover following the heinous terrorist acts of last week. Much is pending resolution and the sorting process for answers is just beginning, but one thing rings true in the hearts of all: A ceaseless appreciation for the heroism displayed by city’s first responders and the citizens of “Boston Strong” during what was a truly terror-filled week.
“The courage and selflessness shown last week was incredible and it was good to see, once again, despite the heavy losses, the triumph of good over evil,” says Julian Omidi, Civic Duty co-founder.
Those who wish to send financial support to the city of Boston in its recovery efforts can donate to:
The American Red Cross
(Donors also can text REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.)
“It is also a very opportune time for us all to consider the importance in today’s world of being civic-minded – that is to look after the needs and interests of our fellow citizens and the cities and communities we live in,” says Dr. Michael Omidi Civic Duty’s other founder. “It is only through our own awareness and vigilance for looking out for one another, that we can hold out hope for a better and more caring world.”
United States citizens should report any suspicious activity they witness to their local law enforcement authorities or on the Department of Homeland Security website.
“If you see something, say something” is a nationwide campaign by the Department of Homeland Security to raise public awareness of indicators of terrorism and terrorism-related crime and to emphasize the importance of reporting suspicious activity to the proper law enforcement authorities.
