Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Boston. No I wasn’t born or raised there, but there is something about this city that I am just infatuated with and consider it my adopted home. I told my husband if I could move anywhere, that wasn’t Hawaii, it would be Boston. When the bombing occurred, I took it hard. I just couldn’t understand why someone could do something so harsh to such wonderful city and to all those people. I have been on Boylston Street many times, even to watch the Red Sox World Series Parade there.
On our recent trip to Boston, it was very important for me to make sure that we stopped and paid our respects at the Boston Bombing Memorial site. It was hard to explain the significance of the site to my kids, and even harder to answer their questions on why this happened. And although I didn’t have the time to take in the whole site, you could feel the love and support from all over the world.
