In the day after the Boston Marathon bombings, it was pretty obvious that we are a city in mourning. Any place I went, people (myself included) just had these sad, dazed looks on their faces. Did that really just happen to us?
It’s hard to know what to do to help during a time like this. Thankfully, there are some pretty kick-ass and resourceful people throughout this area who put together benefits so we could all gather, raise money and celebrate this incredible town of ours. Last night, Chad and I went to a benefit at t.t. the bears place.
During a time when we all feel kind of helpless, it’s nice to feel like there is something we can do. Even if that just means throwing money in a box, having a few drinks and listening to live local music.
It was great to see how many people showed up, especially on a Tuesday night. Seeing a community come together in a time of crisis is a really amazing thing.
Chad and I have been in Boston 7, maybe 8 years now. And we definitely feel a sense of pride for where we live and how special of a city this really is.
Thanks again to everyone for all of your love and support during this hard time. Your texts, emails, various messages and videos of your too-cute-for-words children laughing really help get me through the day.
