On a typical April 15, I would be bogged down in mundane tasks, including getting my taxes postmarked. But instead, this past Monday, I was consumed with the news coming out of Boston. And really, how couldn’t any of us be? My Facebook feed revealed post after post from news outlets trying to to report updates and stories as quickly as they could. But the most important post I came across were from those of my friends in the city. My thoughts immediately turned to are they ok?
Here’s just one example: To my FB world: I’m ok!! Yes, I’m still in Boston. And yes (as many of you know) I’m at my fav Boston hotel (Sheraton Boston) about 5 mins walking from the finish line of the Marathon. Was at the finish line earlier but had left to take a work call so left 10 mins before explosion. They’ve evacuated the Hilton across the street and hotel just called to let me know we’re in lockdown. But I’m ok. It’s chaos here though and I can’t believe this is happening!!
