Today we remember the families, friends, strangers of 4.15.13 today the Mayor of Boston has asked us to do good, be kind, and share love as we remember those affected by the Boston Marathon Attacks.
OneBostonDay One Boston DayApril 15th marks the beginning of a new annual Boston tradition: One Boston Day. This day will be a celebration of the resiliency, generosity, and strength of the people that make Boston the great city it is. What will you do?
My heart brakes when I think of 4.15.13, but all we can do is be kind every.single.day. We can only fight hatred with kindness. Below is moments before the attacks happened, moments after seeing my neice, nephew, brother, mother, grandmother, all skattered on both sides on the finish, and my sister by my side. As I type this, and think back to the moments, my whole world changed, my whole perception of the world changed. Luckily my family, friends, and strangers around me were not injured physically, and the strangers around me that offered clothing, a helping hand, a smile, showed that kindness always triumphs evil.
I will never forget the friends, people, and strangers that helped me run again, they helped me know that I can do things even when my heart is breaking for those who can’t.
Then you to my family, my running buddies, Beantown Bootcamp, and complete strangers for giving me the courage to run again.
I may be untrained, sick, and injured but I can not wait to be on that starting line in 2015, on Marathon Monday.
We are #BostonStrong and I do Love that Dirty Water.
