Boston Stonger

One year later we truly are stronger.  Boston is an incredible city filled with awesome people.  We have all witnessed this in the past year since the Boston Marathon tragedy. 

It is unfortunate that it takes a tragedy to see the good in people but it is all the good that has brought us through the dark days.

One year later the survivors continue to heal.  They are getting married.  They are having babies.  They are dancing.  They are running.  They are writing books.  They are living!

I still had a hard time processing that day.  It brings tears to my eyes.  I really don't know how I will watch the marathon on Monday without balling my eyes out.  But I will be there.  Cheering on the runners and standing proudly along Comm Ave to show we are Boston StrongER!

There have been SO many amazing articles published in the last week.  So far this has been my favorite piece. Beautiful photos of amazing survivors! 

I have not had a chance to visit Dear Boston at the Boston Public Library yet but I will before it is gone.  From what I've heard it is pretty special.

Some of the photos I took last year just days after the tragedy. . .

Today I am remembering those we lost,  continuing to pray for those who are still healing and hoping that there will be justice. . .

Last year I wrote several posts following the marathon.  To read the post I wrote on this day last year go here.  Other posts here, here, and here.


  1. I can't believe it's already been a year! Glad you're going to go to the marathon-- I'm sure it will be special.

  2. It is so hard to watch the specials, it brings back so many of the feelings. I will always love Massachusetts though for how we came together. So many people stepped up and helped others and made me so proud to be from here.

  3. It's going to be one hell of a race! Seeing those pictures is making me cry all over again. Cheer, yell and scream on Monday!!!

  4. Bostonians are STRONG people that's for sure. As sad as the event was, as you pointed out, the fact it made the city come together really is inspiring.
