Reflecting Upon Everyday Moments that became Precious and Often Indelible Memories

April 15, 2013–marked the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, the world’s oldest annual marathon. The popular event is held annually on Patriots’ Day, to commemorate the 1775 battles of Lexington and Concord that kicked off the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783).  Events in Boston have compelled me to update earlier prose originally written while I was employed at the U.S. Census Bureau and formalized into a post on March 7, 2013.

The events impacted, molded, and joined lives of the people who shared and survived them together.  Some of the moments became precious memories and others indelible because they were so horrific and unbelievable that we couldn’t forget them even if we wanted.
