Happiness, Loss, Love

Boston,

You gave me my best memories; a joyous, foolish freedom, the lightness of possibility, an invincibility cloaked in the perfectly imperfect.  You’ve shown me the deepest love; a second family, a better half. Your spirit is undiminished,  so of course, the shadow of cowardice came to tarnish you on the brightest of all days.

On this day of horror and grief, when death comes swiftly, randomly, infuriatingly, all you can do is hold onto someone you love,  do something you love, and continue the courageous struggle, the holy grail of all quests, to love again in the face of hatred.
