At first we were stunned, then terrified, and then frantically trying to get in touch with all our friends back home to make sure they were okay (they are). Then I was thankful, but angry. I was confused. Who could do this? Why?!
Today, I’m heartbroken. Heartbroken for the city I love. Heartbroken for the victims and their families. Heartbroken by the violence that tears families apart all throughout the world.
But, I’m also inspired. Inspired and touched by the kindness, the bravery, and the generosity of those who have volunteered to help in light of this tragedy. The world really is a beautiful place– a tragic, but beautiful place. My heart is with you, Boston. xx
