A few summers ago my family and I spent a couple of days in Boston. I immediately fell in love with the city, its beauty, and the strength and dedication of its people. There really is a comradeship in its people, who are so warm and inviting. It’s one of the most American cities I can think of.
Whenever a tragedy happens in America (or anywhere, of course), it is absolutely heartbreaking to see the pain caused by acts of hatred and stupidity. But after watching videos, reading articles, and looking through pictures, I have come to notice one thing about our country: we really do stand together, help each other, and come out of these things stronger. I don’t know anyone personally who has been affected by these recent tragedies, so maybe that’s too much for me to say, but it really is so inspiring and humbling to watch how Americans help each other in these times.
