On a personal note? I live in Boston and this has been really crazy to say the least. I’m on lockdown right now along with the rest of of the city and several towns around me, as law enforcement attempts to track down one of the suspects in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing. The other suspect, his older brother, died in a gunfight with police.
Lockdown means that it’s highly recommended that I stay in my house with the doors locked. The busy street I live on is nearly empty. No cars. No trains. It’s like an episode of the Twilight Zone. There’s no point in going out anyway–within a 3 to 4 mile radius of where I live, businesses are shut tight.
But I don’t want to dwell on any of that. Instead, let’s focus on the strength and resilience of the folks who have endured Monday’s terror attack and it’s aftermath. Take a minute to think of those who who have died, are suffering, and their families.
In that spirit, here are Boston hockey fans singing the National Anthem before the Bruins game on Tuesday. Prior, there was a moment of silence and a moving montage of photos set to…yep. Phillip Phillip’s “Home.” This post is even on topic. I’m not going to lie. I cried for real.
