"Boston took a punch on Monday — two of them, actually — that left it staggering for a bit. Flesh proved vulnerable, as flesh is wont to do, but the spirit merely trembled before recasting itself into something stronger than any bomb or rage." Dennis Lehane
Spring in Boston is long anticipated and fleeting but when it finally arrives there is a collective "ahh".
This year there is something special in the air, the sun feels warmer, people friendlier and the pace has slowed.
The Marathon bombings have saddened us, shown us the worst and the BEST of humankind and proved that good always prevails.
