Artist's Description

Boston is my home.
The Boston Marathon runs through the streets of my city.
Its finish line is 7 picturesque blocks from my Back Bay home.

Patriot’s Day 2013, I’m far away visiting family when I learn of the Boston Marathon bombing. In disbelief I watch news reports on a crime scene made up of intimately familiar places from my daily life. Reading a commentary this morning, I’m reminded that Boston never surrenders and, wishing I were home, I relive walks through Boston in my mind and images and remember why I so easily surrendered my heart to this great town which I now proudly call home.

This image keeps me company today… September 11th last year, an unexpected turn brought me to a single piece of paper left in the Garden of Remembrance to honor victims of terrorist tragedy. It’s message only grows more powerful with time.

All proceeds from sales of Boston Strong images will be donated to The One Fund “to help the people most affected by the tragic events that occurred in Boston on April 15, 2013.”

The Garden of Remembrance, memorial for Massachusetts family members lost September 11th.
