A Moment of Silence for Boston

I'm so happy to report that things are finally getting back to normal here in Boston. The reopening of Boylston Street has played a big role in making that happen, and the warm weather has the people of Boston walking down that very street with smiles on their faces. Our return to normalcy, however, does not mean that we have forgotten what happened here, and I don't think we ever will. On Monday, we remembered the victims of the Boston Marathon attack with a state-wide moment of silence. I joined hundreds of others at the corner of Boylston and Berkley, alongside the crime scene barrier and a memorial for the victims, as we stood in silence until bells rang throughout the city. After the moment of silence I was able to take a few photographs, and I want to share them with you. I think they speak for themselves...

  1. I just hated having Boylston closed - with all the police there, it just felt like the city was...occupied. It's nice to be back, and to see the love this city has for its fellow man.

    1. I agree, it was so strange seeing police officers on every corner. I love that Boston still feels as united now as it did 2 weeks ago.
