A Strange Week


Last week was a difficult week to be away from Boston on vacation. My family is usually out on Patriot’s Day Monday watching the Boston Marathon. We wander down our street and mingle with the other spectators, friends, and neighbors on Commonwealth Avenue at the start of the Newton hills.

Instead we spent the week in Charleston and Washington hearing about the events through the news, Facebook and Twitter. Some it was informative, and some was misinformed.

On sunny post-vacation Monday morning, everything feels the same in a city that felt such tragedy a week ago. That’s good.

I’m sure there are compliance angles about the story. You have to wonder what made the brothers go bad. You have to be concerned about investigation process. You have to be concerned about the abrogation of rights.

But today is really about getting back to normal.
