Two explosions near the finish line rocked the Boston Marathon, killing three and injuring more than 170.

"My heart aches for my hometown," Mindy Kaling tweeted.

Comedian Patton Oswalt posted an inspirational message on Facebook Monday afternoon that's been shared more than 220,000 times. He said humanity has more light than darkness.

"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,'" he wrote.
