Boston

It’s the city closest to my heart, and the bastards targeted the purest form of human achievement that one could imagine. I can’t even think of what to say. I’m at a loss.

So I’ll just quote this guy instead:

“There’s something particularly devastating about an attack on a marathon. It’s an epic event in which men and women appear almost superhuman. The winning men run for hours at a pace even normal fit people can only hold in a sprint. But it’s also so ordinary. It’s not held in a stadium or on a track. It’s held in the same streets everyone drives on and walks down. An attack on a marathon is, in some ways, more devastating than an attack on a stadium; you’re hitting something special but also something very quotidian.”
