Marathon Monday

Today is the 118th running of the Boston Marathon. One year ago, two angry, hated filled men caused

untold pain and suffering by planting two bombs at the Boston Marathon. They thought they would intimidate the city, make everyone cower in fear and hurt as many people as they could.

They did, indeed, hurt many people. They killed five people. But they underestimated the people of Boston, New England, and the US as a whole. Doctors, nurses, first responders and people who had first aid training in the Boy Scouts as a child, all rushed to help the injured. Many ran from the marathon they had just finished running to the hospitals to help in any way possible. Boston came together in a single instant, rallying around the tragic event to help the injured and to help the police catch the men responsible. Bostonians refused to be broken. They were strong. They fought back. And I am proud to be associated with their strength, to be Boston Strong. Boston, you're my home!
