Staying Strong

As a marathoner and also someone who grew up loving Copley Square, I feel deeply the violation of a holy space by senseless violence.

Our hopes and prayers are with the victims and first responders.

I appreciate the great resolve expressed by the President and all in federal, state and local law enforcement to bring the perpetrators to justice.

  1. Let’s not forget the honor due Boston’s medical community as well, with its state of the art technology, highly trained surgeons and caregivers, and especially the willingness of these persons to devote many hours a day to their extremely daunting task.

    Just imagine what it’s like when such a thing happens in Iraq or Pakistan. Many people die of injuries they would have survived here in Boston.

  2. Re: As a woman with a disability, although I often like to go out and be active in the community, I stayed at home on Marathon Monday, so that the RIDE vans could be used for dialysis patients, and other medical and economic uses (i.e. people going to work). Ironically, I cancelled my volunteer job ride at BIDMC yesterday. They got at least 60 patients in trauma. I also called the mayor’s hotline to discover that they have no reports of any “runners” in wheelchairs being hurt or killed. I am glad for that. If I believe that people with disabilities should be treated as “equals” among their able-bodied counter-parts,then we must also alleviate the suffering of those who now will carry a disability for the rest of their lives as a result of this senseless violence. My deepest sympathy also for those who were lost in death.
