After a senseless and terrifying tragedy, the Internet does one thing well: it shares information. But beyond the news and stories of carnage, death and heroism, the Internet never fails in showcasing humanity's creative, lighter side.

Hanging around social media throughout the night, unable to sleep after the events of yesterday's marathon bombings, I collected some viral images I thought would shed some light on Boston in the darkest of times.

Here are some Internet memes, for your viewing pleasure:

This one is circulating on Facebook. Reportedly cast on the Brooklyn Academy of Music, by the NYC Light Brigade.

Perhaps not surprisingly, Mr. Rogers has been a source of strength for many. I've seen this reposted from friends across the world on Reddit, Twitter, and Facebook.

South End Textiles posted this reimagining of the iconic Citgo sign on Facebook last night, after the bombing.

A friend posted this and said, "Terriers, not terrorism."

A Boston spin on a now-classic meme:
