Builders build, painters paint, writers write… After witnessing the tragedy in Boston first, I came home with a fresh take on life, a new thankfulness for my blessings, and a heavy heart. Although I did not see the blood that was shed with my own two eyes on Boylston Street – I saw the smoke come out of the side of the building and felt the blasts in my belly. Coming home and realizing how close you were to such a loss – something that has affected the WORLD – is a strange feeling.
From this I asked myself what could I do to shed light on the situation? What did I take, see, hear and feel while I was up there? How can I share my heart and spread the amazing love that I witnessed? Again, builders build, painters paint, writers write. I’m a writer.
