I cannot imagine the horror of being at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in Copley Square in person on April 15th. Even though I watched it in real time on TV, I still cannot imagine what it was like to be there.
What an awful terror for all of Boston, especially for the families of the victims and those so savagely injured. I had just returned from covering NAB to what became a sorrowful week steeped in terror, mourning and grief for far too many. Thank goodness for the heroics of good men and women, the world’s finest medical community and the well coordinated response of local law enforcement for which we can be so proud. The heroics of that day will form the nucleus of countless stories that will be heralded for years to come.
