boston friday night

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.

Bloomberg: Boston bomb victim in photo helped identify suspects

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.

You can help Jeff Bauman HERE. I donated. It’s a fundraiser coordinated by the Bedford Village Inn in New Hampshire. The owners are friends with Bauman’s parents. MORE from WMUR on how to help.

Also on WMUR, a photo of Jeff in the hospital, with special visitors.

One thought on “Captured

  1. My blood still runs cold: knowing and watching how many local police, state patrol, FBI and National Guard were deployed in the attempt to apprehend two young men. The image and reports of good citizens being bound, “sequestered”, if you will, prisoners in their own homes defies the US Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    We are at war within our own borders.

    The so called “Civil War” of the 1860’s will be a pissant video game compared to what is in store unless we turn out, and turn over the power structure rooted and embedded on the banks of the Potomac.
