The news on Monday afternoon was shocking, sad, and unthinkable. I clicked through photo galleries, watched videos, and chatted with friends on Facebook about the attack.
But above the pain,
After the shock,
Beyond the sadness,
We all saw action, heroism, and kindness. Strangers opening up their homes and wallets - and veins - to help. We saw people running towards the bomb sites to aid those in need.
I am sharing some photos from past Boston vacations today; it is a gorgeous city with old and new charm, mixed perfectly. A true American city. With real American heroes.
