Along with everyone else, I’ve been reeling from the news in Boston throughout the week. I’ve been wondering whether I ought to address it here, or if it was inappropriate to do so. Born in Boston and raised in Cambridge, the senseless pain and terror caused by the marathon bombing hit really close to home, and I’ve been glued to facebook and my phone, reassured by the activity of friends, family and old classmates. While I believe all my friends and family are safe and unscathed, in spite of some close calls, my heart aches for those less lucky, and those working tirelessly to do what they can to help.

The recent developments, with the dramatic events of the last 24 hours ripping through Cambridge and neighboring towns, and now learning both of the accused attended my high school (some years after me), have brought it that much closer to home.  I thought this article, which offers a thoughtful look at my alma mater, also speaks well to my sentiments.

Hoping you and yours are safe and well.
