for boston tonight

 

IMG_7364

today was a normal monday

until it wasn’t

i love this town,

i love New England

my ancestors came here on the mayflower

my ancestor was a preacher killed as a witch in Salem

my ancestor hung the lantern in the old north church to warn that the british were coming

my ancestors fought in the revolutionary war, were sons of liberty, fought to build a new nation

my ancestor was the wife of a president and the mother of a another president

my ancestors were patriots and brave did not cower in the face of terror or injustice or tyranny

WE are patriots

WE are brave

WE DO NOT COWER IN THE FACE OF TERROR OR INJUSTICE OR TYRANNY

we do however pray for the victims and weep for the fallen and hold our loved ones dear tonight

Good night Boston, we love you…
