I, like most Bostonians, have spent the last couple of days trying to digest what happened at Monday’s Marathon and, I must admit, I am still coming to grips with the reality of the situation. The city that I know and love is forever changed and the sporting event that so many of us looked forward to each year will never be the same.
In the office for the first time since the bombings occurred, my colleagues and I have been sharing stories back and forth, not about the investigation or possible suspects, but about the heroic citizens that stepped in to help, the feeling of community and solidarity in the city and the prayers and acts of kindness that we have received from around the country. We have taken great comfort in these stories, and I hope that by sharing them, we can provide some comfort to others.
