But, no, she had come home to Dorchester to watch the Marathon, and, in the end, to run it again as she had the year before. She and her friend had just crossed the finish line and were only a block or so away when the bombs went off. She and friend are fine physically, but no one who was there or who had loved ones there will ever be quite the same.
This is a tribute that my niece put together. She is an amazing person and this is an amazing tribute.
Please take a moment to watch this and, if you feel moved to, share it with others.
