Patton Oswalt, a 44-year old comedian and a California based actor, used the Facebook to give a short post about the Boston Marathon Attack. And after the said Facebook post, it goes on viral and shared more than 150,000 times.

“Boston. F—— horrible,” Oswalt began. “I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, ‘Well, I’ve had it with humanity.’ But I was wrong.”

“I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem,” Oswalt, best known as the voice of Remy in the 2007 animated film “Ratatouille,” continued with his post. “One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths. But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet.”

In the said post that has been liked more than 256,000 times and shared more than 192,000 times, the comedian says Monday that the Boston Marathon attack can still be a cause for hope.

Here’s the Facebook post of  Patton Oswalt that gained thousand times of likes.

“Boston. F***ing horrible.

I remember, when 9/11 went down, my reaction was, ‘Well, I’ve had it with humanity.’

But I was wrong. I don’t know what’s going to be revealed to be behind all of this mayhem. One human insect or a poisonous mass of broken sociopaths.

But here’s what I DO know. If it’s one person or a HUNDRED people, that number is not even a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a percent of the population on this planet. You watch the videos of the carnage and there are people running TOWARDS the destruction to help out. (Thanks FAKE Gallery founder and owner Paul Kozlowski for pointing this out to me). This is a giant planet and we’re lucky to live on it but there are prices and penalties incurred for the daily miracle of existence. One of them is, every once in awhile, the wiring of a tiny sliver of the species gets snarled and they’re pointed towards darkness.

But the vast majority stands against that darkness and, like white blood cells attacking a virus, they dilute and weaken and eventually wash away the evil doers and, more importantly, the damage they wreak. This is beyond religion or creed or nation. We would not be here if humanity were inherently evil. We’d have eaten ourselves alive long ago.

So when you spot violence, or bigotry, or intolerance or fear or just garden-variety misogyny, hatred or ignorance, just look it in the eye and think, ‘The good outnumber you, and we always will.’”

The said post also received more than 10,000 comments on Facebook almost all saying “Well Said Sir” to Patton Oswalt.
