Terror at the Boston Marathon

Click for photo gallery….

 I am a Bostonian. I attended college and grad school in Boston. My first professional job was on Boylston Street across from Copley Square. My first date with my partner was at the Prudential Center on Boylston Street. I’ve attended a few Boston Marathons. I have had many more firsts and life experiences within the immediate area of the bombings. As the hours pass I am drawn back to Boston…Boston is my home. RIP. Peace. Thank you to all the first responders.

Capture: I had been reading Twitter’s feeds about the Fleetwood Mac concert in Boston on 4/18/13 and then shortly after the concert wrapped (which included a lot of comforting words for the city and victims) my ‘news’ Twitter feed started popping with the MIT shooting and the chase to Watertown (long before the mainstream media picked-up the news)…and then by 4:30am I had to sign-off…at that time all reports had named two suspects (not the brothers) and that one supsect was dead (along with the MIT officer)….but when I got up at 7:30am the news was that the suspects were the two brothers….and then I spent the day following Twitter and the news…until the capture. It was a very obsessive day but I could not keep my mind off of my city. Peace.
