I don't know what "we" (i.e. Boston) did that was so "strong" here.
Don't get me wrong... after the bombing a lot of people stepped up and helped others, and that's great. And I am very glad we got the guys, and hope the arrest leads to more info to nab anyone that helped them.
... but what did your average "Bostonian" or "Masshole" do that was so "strong"?
are you alluding to the over-celebration, and the USA USA chants with #1 fingers in the air?
I'm not alluding to anything.
I'm clearly stating that most of it is BS.
I understand being happy they got the guy.
I have family right there in Watertown... a brother and a sister, and I have an In-Law who lives not 2-3 blocks from where that boat is. I have friends on the Watertown and Boston PD... people I went to school with and have hung out with. So i am certainly relieved!
... but the over-celebration is BS, and the whole "BostonStrong" mentality is BS.
How were we "strong"?
