This week has been a sh**ty one. There's no other way to say it. Our country has seen more loss and experienced more tears this week than it has in a long time. Between the tragic Boston Marathon bombings and the West, Tex. fertilizer plant explosion, the death toll has piled up.

But in the middle of all this terror, America has come together to fight against the pain that others are trying to inflict on us. With thoughts and prayers echoed around the country - and world - America will forever remember the victims of this week's tragic events.

Check out 10 touching tweets from this sad week.
