A photo circulating on Facebook last night, after the day-long lockdown was lifted and the second bombing suspect captured.
I just got back from the monthly beach cleanup and I’m busy today, with little time for reflection, but I want to post a few links of note from the emotional marathon we’ve all just run here in the greater Boston area.
Boston Globe: The stories of 2 brothers suspected in bombing. ‘‘He never told me he would be on the side of jihad.’’ – their mother
Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him.
He is the man in the wheelchair photo with Carlos Arredondo, who saved his life. He lost both legs. When he woke up in the hospital, he immediately took pen and paper and wrote, “bag, saw the guy, looked right at me.” He helped identify the suspects.
Also on WMUR, a photo of Jeff in the hospital, with special visitors.
