And while you’re admiring Coop’s compassion, how about you click over and donate to their recovery fund?
Holy shit, Carlos Arredondo, the heroic man in that picture from the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing is the same guy who lit himself on fire after his son was killed in Iraq and became a dedicated anti-war activist.
I mean, wow.
Edit: And apparently his other son became so depressed after the death of his brother, he killed himself. I think that’s enough for one lifetime now.
This man’s story is so incredible that I’m sincerely speechless.
BREAKING: Reports of two explosions at the Boston Marathon.
Boston’s North End, February 9, 2013
I miss living in Boston for a number of reasons. One being the streets right after a pristine snowfall. Slogging through shin-deep grey slush a week later, not so much. But this? Sigh.
Back in Boston - gin & Titonic mixed by my friend Dave. Yes, that is a Titanic ice cube. #vacation #boston #gin #tonic #titanic (Taken with Instagram)
Being back in Boston brought dual revelations today:
1. The Whole Foods Inverse Theory: the customers here are laid back and chill, while the cashiers are somewhat rude and judgey. Back from whence I came, the staff are unfailingly polite, even though customers can be utter tools from the capital of My Time is More Important than Your Time.
2. I really miss a heavy Boston accent getting arsed about local politics.
