Candace Rispoli was cheering on a friend in the race when the festive atmosphere turned into a "terrifying hell."
Even though Rispoli suffered only minor injuries, the attack has changed her life forever.
"I know I personally will never participate in an event of this nature in a city in fear that something like this could happen again. My hands have still not stopped shaking," she said.I hope Ms. Rispoli is able to be strong and overcome her fear. Because succumbing to fear is just what they want.
