I live about 6 miles from the starting line, in Hopkinton, of the Boston Marathon. Many times I have gone and watched the masses on their run to Boston. I didn’t go yesterday, I was too busy. I was out in my garden when my wife came out with tears in her eyes and told me there was a bombing at the finish line in Boston.
I’ve lived in Holliston all of my life, it was a boring town when I was a teenager, but a great place to bring up children of your own as a parent. Safe, quiet, friendly, insulated from the people that are on the evening news. Not yesterday. I was angry, why? why?? why??? We may never know.
I’m sad today.
