I am a Bostonian

I am a Bostonian

A Story by Mary E Green

In the wake of the trajedy of Marathon Monday...I reflect.

     I dream of traveling the world, my list is quite long in fact, but I will always come home. No matter how beautiful, exciting, serene these places can be- Boston is home. My nightime lullaby as a child was the planes headed into Logan & the cars passing on Rt. 93. My favorite book was "Make Way for the Ducklings". I dreamed of being part of The Boston Ballet. As a teen, taking the train into town was the epitome of cool. Headed across the border to college was always marked in my mind no matter how many times I made this trip. My accent has been questioned but not even once did I feel embarrassed. I am the blood of Boston- proud & strong yesterday, today & all my tomorrows.

Who we are as Americans. People from different necks of the woods aspiring to do great things. Dreaming big as a child and learning to embrace the life one has acquired. Boston, New York, Connecticut, Colorado, Arizona and Oklahoma are great examples of our nations resilience. Thank you for sharing!

Inspiring. No one, foreign nor domestic will break your spirits! I know that my school is planning on doing blood donation to help. I hope you had no loses. We know Boston will come back stronger than ever and that the villains behind his will be caught and receive proper punishment. Love and support from Rhode Island.
