This has been a week like I've never experienced before in my life, similar I think to how the people of NYC felt after 9/11. The Marathon bombings happened within 2 miles of my office. Thankfully none of my friends, family, or coworkers were directly affected, but there were some close calls and I do know people that knew someone that was wounded or killed. I have watched the Marathon finish myself in the area of the bombings, but years ago.

It has been a very emotional week. Starting with the incredible response of the onsite first responders and the medical teams that leapt into action. The way people in this city and surrounding communities have come together. And even the response from the entire country. I can't tell you how meaningful gestures like the United We Stand sign on Yankee Stadium, or playing Sweet Caroline at games across the country have been.

This morning brings a surreal dawn. I had fallen asleep early last night, so I'm only now learning of the violence that began around midnight. Shootouts, explosives thrown at police. The MIT police officer was killed less than a mile from my office, the car jacking by the suspects less than a half-mile from my office. I can't go to work right now. Public transit is shut down, the area around my office has been told to shelter in place. Businesses are shut down.

One bomber is dead, I was just trying to reach my staff to make sure they watched the news and stayed home.

I hope they catch the other guy alive. I think this community wants to look that bastard in the eye. They will not win.

Mark

Stay safe Mark. I'm watching the news, looks to be another long day for the greater Boston area. Praying everyone stays safe and for the officer in the hospital. God Bless the MIT officer.

Well then see you in France in a couple of weeks only almost 8 weeks to go then it's off to the 24H of Le Mans

Your not missing much. Street courses are not real photography friendly. Crap, everywhere you look in the background.

Thanks, Jay. Our time was cut so short by the weather I never got around to grabbing any hero shots of you, for which I apologize.
