→ Dan Moren on the Boston Marathon Bombing

In times like this, it’s all too common to say one doesn’t feel safe—and certainly, I remember feeling that way in the aftermath of September 11th. But I’m older now. More to the point, this is a place I know. I want to walk that street again, and I don’t think I’ll feel afraid to do so.

Because scars and all, it’s still my city—and that’s one feeling that never goes away.

Dan embodies the spirit of Boston perfectly.
