Like all great cities, when we are kicked to the ground, we get back up and help those around us get back up. Today the streets of Boston, except in the area closed off as a continuing crime scene, were filled with people. They paid respects.
Therapy dogs and their volunteers abounded, providing much-needed fuzz therapy.
More importantly, Bostonians of all walks came out to enjoy a beautiful day, to soak up the sunshine on the Common and down Newbury Street, to cheer on the home teams and to Keep On Living.
Because that’s what we do.
