On Monday April 15th a tragedy like no other befell my beloved Boston. A week later the site of this horrible event is still deathly still, normally the busy center of the city.
Strangers from all over the world gathered to lay momentos and prayers. Boston Strong echoed across the land, even those damn NY Yankees paid us tribute.
A pile of chalk outside the closed Niketown store, allowed anyone that wanted, to leave a personal message of hope and support.
One of the memorials was growing steadily and had to moved to a new location. Every piece of tribute was carefully replaced several blocks away. Stuffed animals, worn out running shows, Marathon medals, flowers, prayers all laid out with perfect respect.
Even the little ducklings of Boston’s Public Gardens showed their support. Duck You !
