Dadmissions: The Boston List

As we mark one week since the Boston Marathon, I started to think about just what these terrorists had accomplished. I began making a list of the things I think of when I think of my hometown- from landmarks to places to pieces of our history. And a strange thing happened. At the end of my list, I realized even after the bombings, all those things are STILL part of the fabric of this city. They always will be just like the memories of Martin, Krystal, Lu, and Sean, the brave MIT officer. In essence, I’d argue the terrorists accomplished nothing, except unifying the city in a way I have never seen before. Here’s some of the things on MY Boston list and some others I was reminded about. Feel free to share and add your own.
