Lubbock residents frightened, but determined to go on after terror attack

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Lubbock may be thousands of miles away from Boston, but that hasn't stopped people all over the South Plains from questioning their safety.

It's been 11 years and 7 months since 9/11 and although these two terror attacks are very different, this incident has reminded Lubbock residents that terrorism can happen anywhere.

"It seems like everyone's not safe anymore," Meera Duvall said.

"It's really scary. Scary that everyday people are doing what they love to do and that happens," Tara Randolph said.

"You can just never know what events are going to be terrorized at this point," Ashley Michulka said.

As soon as the news broke, people began asking who was responsible.

"What were your first reactions? Wondering who did it and why?" Barbie Reynolds said.

"It makes you wonder if people from another country came here," Karen Carruth said.

People here in Lubbock and all over the country are eager to find answers, but determined to not let this act of terrorism alter their daily lives.

"I don't think I'll do anything differently, because if you do that, they'll win," Carruth said.

"There are just some things that are not in our hands and we just have to have faith that things will be ok," Reynolds said.

Although it's impossible to compare the acts of 9/11 to Monday's events in Boston, many agree, this attack has captured the nation in the same way.
