We all know where we were when this cowardly act occured.
The Boston Marathon around here is a day that symbolizes a lot of things but mostly resiliency, toughness and also, a strong indication that summertime is just around the corner.
However, after 2013, this event has forever been changed.
Boston is coming up on its fourth marathon since the bombings, and every single one it shows how tough the people are around here.
The amount of runners have jumped thousands since 2013, many people running for someone who was brutally injured, or just someone running it to symbolize what its like around here.
Run it back to the times the bombs went off:
Bostonians, who had been running for over four and half hours and finishing up after a long 26 mile run, kept running all the way to local hospitals in the area to give blood to those who were affected by this tragedy.
Bostonians, who saw their brothers and sisters of this unbelievable city lie on the ground in disbelief with their arms and legs blown off, risked their lives to help others, not knowing if their would be more bombs to go off.
Hundreds of tough Bostonians, who had their arms and legs blown off and nearly lost their life and now have prosthetic legs and arms, ran the marathon and finished it just a year after seeing their lives changed forever.
What people don’t understand if you’re not from here is that this city is one big giant family.
No matter what skin color you are, where you work or what town you’re from outside of Boston, if you see a person on the street in Boston with a Sox hat on or the famous Tom Brady jersey on, you immediately have something in common and would do anything for that person in an instance like April 15th, 2013.
If you haven’t realized, these cowards fucked with the wrong city four years ago, and Boston has proved since then that this city isn’t one to fuck with.
