On Monday, April 15th 2013, at 2:50 PM, two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killing three and seriously wounding countless more.
I actually had a lot planned for my blog this week and I’ve started a bunch of posts. It just feels inappropriate and disrespectful to talk about hair and fashion and shopping when my beloved city is in such a state of shock and mourning. I’m certainly still on edge.
If there is one thing I know about Boston and Bostonians it’s that we’re a city of incredibly strong, compassionate and good people. Everyone keeps saying that whoever did this picked the wrong city, and even though it’s a bit of cliche at this point, they did.
We’re a city of fighters and, while life goes on, we will not forget.
Boston has been forever changed but we’ll rise from this stronger and closer than ever.
My heart and prayers are with all the victims, their families and the amazing first responders.
