I ventured down to Copley Square in Boston for the first time since covering the Marathon bombings the day they happened. I wasn’t sure what I’d find, but I knew there was a memorial there and that lots of people have been visiting it.
I’m still not sure what to think of it all. It’s a beautiful memorial, but I was struck by how normal life around it seemed. It’s a bit eerie knowing that so many people are going about their daily lives on Boylston Street, a place that was in absolute chaos just a few weeks ago.
I’m thankful to everyone in this video for their willingness to talk to me, and to Jim for his harmonica playing. They’re all great people who had unique stories to share from Marathon Monday.
As always, I welcome your thoughts, questions, criticisms, and compliments!
Thanks for watching.
