I've lived in New York my whole life. There's a natural rivalry between NY and Boston that's been around a long time, so legally, I am obligated to dislike all things 'Boston'. I think it's in the fine print of my contract.
I CAN say that I DID drive through Boston once. I was never so damn scared in my life. New Yorkers are dangerous drivers, but you Bostonians are CRAZY!
But damn it all if we cant put all that play-rivalry aside for a while and let our hearts go out to the city of Boston for what they went through yesterday. Watching that footage of explosions, and dust flying, and city-goers running for their lives, brought back to me the memory of ANOTHER horrible day, more than a decade ago, where a different city wept. A different city suffered. A different city lost lives. And, in time, a different city was reborn.
Watching the news last night brought back 9/11 for me in a way that i really thought i had gotten past, but i guess i was mistaken.
So, all i can tell you, Bostonians, is to hang in there. In time, things will start to make sense again.
And then, we can go back to hating each other......
