In 2013, the unthinkable happened when bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three people, including a boy, and harming 264 others. As the world looked on in horror, Boston responded in a way that demonstrated a tenacity and spirit that has always been the undercurrent of that city. Boston showed the world that despite being assaulted on one of its most glorious days, a day that it proudly hosted runners and their families from across the globe, it was strong. Boston strong. As I wrote in the hours that followed that horrific day, Boston is grit and determination. Boston is courage. Boston is PRIDE. Boston doesn’t bow to queens. Or crazies. And definitely not to terrorists.
All that said, what wasn’t so clear, was how the Boston Red Sox would become improbable 2013 World Series Champions at a time when a broken city needed it most. This team, who twelve months before finished LAST in the American league, won the World Series for Boston, in Boston, for a people that badly needed something to smile about.
