Being there, now

I visited Boston on my most recent trip to America, and having stood on the very streets where this awful event took place has made the horror of what happened all the more real to me. That being said, there have been a lot of inspirational stories that have come out of the aftermath. The kind of stories that help restore my faith in people. I really enjoyed this post. I’m glad to know the people of Boston are staying strong as a community.

One thought on “Being there, now

  1. I’m glad you got to visit Boston while you were in the States; it’s naturally one of my favorite American cities. (I may, however, be biased.) News stories always seem “realer” when you’ve actually been to the place being reported. Maybe this is why well-traveled folks tend to have a more informed view of politics and world events.
