A year ago today, Boston suffered an unimaginable tragedy when cowards attacked the Boston Marathon. This wasn’t just an attack on the City of Boston, but on an international event that brings people from all nations together, whether they love running or not.
Today, Tuesday April 15th, Mayor Martin Walsh invites you to please join Boston in a moment of silence at 2:49 pm (or 1449), to remember the lives lost, the strong survivors, and all those who helped out in any way that they could that day and in the aftermath, especially our first responders and agents.
I have a lot of thoughts on that day, which I plan to share in another post later today. For now I just want to focus on getting the word out about the moment of silence, in hopes that you’ll participate and remember the victims, survivors, and responders.
I was not financially compensated for this posting. Boston is the home of my family, the people I love the most in this world. This is why I’m posting. Opinions are 100% my own.
