Yesterday, we were out taking photos of a beautiful event on a beautiful day. The marathon flags were flying from the Old South Church. A few hours later, we were grateful that we were back home downloading photos when the explosions happened.
We're thinking about our neighbors, local businesses, and all of Boston's visitors. In a moment everything changed for them. We'll all carry a piece of this day in our hearts for the rest of our lives. Our thoughts go out to the victims and their families.
We also saw the city come together to help the runners, their families, and one another. Bostonians are good people. And, we are so proud of our emergency responders and the BAA volunteers who stood their ground and did a difficult job.
We believe that getting back to normal is an important part of healing, and of not giving in to those who would have us live in fear. Tomorrow, we'll resume our scheduled posts about getting on with life in Boston.
