- Jofid:Did you know that today is also Hanukkah?
- Limmy:Really? Oh, I didn’t know!
- Jofid:Yah! Apparently it’s the first time Thanksgiving and Hanukkah is happening on the same day in 125 years. Everyone in America is probably going mad right now.
I’ll say it again.
People running towards explosions to help. Blood bank rejecting donors because they’re at capacity. All wounded made it to hospitals and survived.
Restaurants staying open to provide food and battery for charging phones, Dunkin Donuts especially, by request of local law enforcement officials.
Google doc with lodging offers. Massive photo and video upload to aid investigation.
Survivor comes to and first thing he does is offer description of suspect.
Suspect was found because a Watertown resident
kept his eyes open after lockdown was relaxed, saw the blood around the boat and lifted up the tarp, then immediately went home and called 911.**
Quick on the uptake. Look out for each other. Tough as nails. Don’t mess with this city. City of Heroes. City of Minutemen. #bostonstrong
The Watertown man who found Dzhokhar Tsarnaev hiding in his boat says he is an “incidental hero.”
David Henneberry tells WCVB that contrary to what’s been reported, he did not see blood outside his boat. There was “no indication of anything.” Instead Henneberry was simply going outside to fix some foam rollers that had fallen off.
When he rolled up the boat cover, he saw blood on the floor of the boat, then he looked toward the front and saw more blood. When he looked toward the engine, he saw a body. He did not see a face.
"It’s surreal," Henneberry said. "I wasn’t out on the prowl. I was out to see my boat and I stumbled upon this." (source: The Two-Way, NPR)
His words were, ‘I levitated off the ladder.’ He does not remember going back into the house. He told his wife, ‘Lock the doors,’ and he called 911.” (source: New York Times)
That’s my home church in Greater Boston, Highrock Arlington! I was blessed enough to sing in this choir for two years, and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. The funds raised from the concert go towards funding a part-time social worker position for families in crisis in the town of Arlington.
"When we moved into town, & bought the building, we really felt the desire to be a part of the town, & basically just do what we feel Jesus calls us to do as Christians, which is to love our neighbors."

If you’re wondering why I a foreign citizen like me should care, it’s because like it or not, US foreign policy and economic performance affects me directly, and US behavior—modeling peaceful, (hopefully) thoughtful and constructive political participation—affects me indirectly. Simple as that. We all set the tone for each other on this interconnected planet. Do it!
