Here's to Boston. Boston is my home- I live in Maine now and have for the last decade and a half, but Beantown will always be my home. So when I heard that the Hub was attacked I couldn't help but get a little emotional. I used to live On That Street- Dartmouth Street, I used to live about 1000 feet from there for a few years and I went to college On That Street- Boylston Street, 1000 feet in the other direction. Who would possibly want to attack the Boston Marathon- and certainly this isn't the first time that someone has pointed this out, but: what a cowardly an absolutely despicable way to fight a fight! What ever happened to hanging a banner on a building or a monument to get a point across, why is it necessary to resort to violence? My heart goes out to those that sufferer and the victims and the city of Boston.
