As some of you may know, this is a Boston-based blog.
I’m not here to rant and rave about yesterday’s events, because there is really not much more to be said. A feeling has swept over the city that is really indescribable – it’s something that anyone who has ever been to Boston, or lived here, would not believe. It takes a lot to get Bostonians down, but what matters is how we get back up.
I want to take a little time to acknowledge and thank those in the global community for the outpour of support to those affected, and share some of our favorite pop stars’ messages to the people of Boston:
Prayers for Boston
