Yesterday, I was lucky enough to have the day off from work due to Patriot’s Day. I was also happy not to have to deal with the Red Sox game and the Boston Marathon traffic. Now, I’m just extremely saddened by the devastation from 2 bombs going off near the marathon finish line. Patriot’s Day will now have a whole new meaning.
These flowers were supposed to be a shot to show how lovely it is to have Spring here. Now, they are more of a memorial to those that were killed and injured in the blasts. My heart goes out to all those injured, their families, and to all of us for having to deal with another tragedy in this country. I will say that it was encouraging to hear how many people opened their homes to runners that had no place to stay.
