He also was not alone. Great numbers of people, though entirely unprepared for such a disaster, did not hesitate for a moment, but rushed into an unimaginable scene of horror to help any way they could. Though I was greatly troubled by the realities of this event, I found a deep pride in the response of the city’s first responders, police and most remarkably… the bystanders – regular people like you and I. This is the type of action that has made Boston a great city and a great city it remains.
Boston is the heart of New England. Therefore, Boston is New England. We are Boston. May God bless the people of the great City of Boston and all others impacted by this terrible tragedy.
