When I was young adult going to College learning a large city like Boston was tough. I remember what a friend told me " You have to get lost on the T to learn the T " I was very careful not to get lost but eventually I did. They were right I found my way home it was an achievement I held in high regard Most people think Boston folks aren't friendly. I find they are nice and polite , friendly. You can ask for directions really with no problem. I always felt safe even walking home from the train at night. I honestly didn't get a scary feelings coming home. Bad things did happen but you took them in stride went on living your life. We often thought nothing of going out on a restless evening to explore the city. There was always something new around the corner . I got comfortable I even acquired a serious Bostonian glare/. I adopted a coffee place eventually navigated the train on auto pilot. I thought that magical feeling of Boston would die down the longer I lived there. It didn't I still got excited feeling in my tummy when I'd venture out. You have to visit Boston feel its energy we are a big but small city. You'll fall in love with the city this I guarantee. The beautiful vibrate people of Boston will seal the deal you'll be hooked.
When I learned of the events today I was heart broken beyond words even. I will say this if this was a terrorist attack be warned today is a day of mourning. We will rise up bigger and better then ever . The people of New England will rise up and take back our city. You'll see how strong we are a force that will shine lightness on the darkness that invaded our city. Boston is going to show you the power of a community, love , strength. My heart goes out to all effected today. Just know that we are all here for you. Your not alone America is behind you .We have your back we will pull through this all of us together.
