I want to thank all the folks who commented and expressed their feelings and condolences. Beth, Beth's sister, Carole, Nookworm, Catches the eye, Terry, Caroldee, Buttons and Jo-Anne Meadows. Thank you all. It means so much to me.
I have been filled with much emotion over the last few days. Not only for the people killed but for all those killed but all those who received critical injuries. I am filled with sorrow and anger. As I have watched the tears would well up in my eyes.
I have to express my admiration for all the law enforcement people. The medical people and the average citizens who ran towards the blast area, not away, to do whatever they could to help the injured. It was an amazing show of humanity. I am humbled. This has been an experience that has shaken us around here. There have been explosions, 5 deaths, 175 or so injuries, some critical, some severe, car chases, gun battles, police cars rushing in all directions, helicopters in the sky over the parking lot at work, helicopters all over the place. My thanks for the support from all over country and the world for Boston. We will rebound. I admit that I swelled with pride when President Obama said, and I'm not sure it's a direct quote but it went something like this, "They picked the wrong city to terrorize. Not Boston.....not Boston."
Now I know he was playing to the crowd but I didn't care. It made me feel good and swell with pride and make no mistake we are all proud to live here in Boston. I love the phrase, "Boston Strong".
Here is the slideshow I mentioned in my previous entry. It took me a while to pour through my pictures then to put it together and upload. It is by no means the whole city as I have not been everywhere. I took these pictures over the last six years.
Once again my thanks to all. I will be back visiting around on a more regular basis in a day or two.
