What a long strange week it’s been. Monday started with a bombing and Friday culminated with the capture of the suspects. Early Friday morning (around 6am) they shut down the MBTA so I was unable to go into work. About an hour later work sent out an email stating that they were on lock down and that everyone should stay inside. I’m glad I wasn’t able to get into town and be stranded there because then I actually would have had to do some work. Instead I was glued to the TV and social media. It was a beautiful 75 degrees outside and yet I only left the apartment for about 20 minutes all day. I kept reading facebook postings to make sure everyone I knew was safe and sound and to keep up to the minute on what was happening.

Hopefully, now the city can begin to heal and we can find some peace and harmony.
