**I wrote this post on the evening of April 15, 2013. It only seems fitting that I re-post today on the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Tragedy. Join me today in taking some time to pause and reflect on the Boston Marathon tragedy and all those affected.**
As someone who has lived in the Boston-area and blogged about Boston for many years, my heart goes out to everyone impacted by today’s tragedy. I am incredibly sad to see the Boston Marathon and my beloved city subject to such a horrific incident. While I have no doubt that Boston will come back stronger than ever, our city and Marathon will still be forever changed.
