Stacy Shaw of Hastings, Nebraska was the last runner to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon Monday before the bombs went off. Shaw returned Thursday to her fifth-grade class who were waiting with posters, flowers, cookies and a lot of questions.

Shaw spent the first few minutes of class answering those questions and told her students not to let bad things keep them from doing what they love. "Never let fear dictate what you do in life, you need to do what you want to do."

Shaw plans to return to Boston and run in next year's marathon.
