Heartbreak and Resilience: The 2013 Boston Marathon and Beyond

I went to the marathon this year (for the first time!) to cheer on two of my runner friends. I got there early enough to catch the elite runners finishing. After I saw one of my friends pass by around 2pm, I walked up Boylston to meet my friend Kelly at Starbucks and find our other runner friend. I was waiting there when all hell broke loose. It's hard to believe how such a perfect day went so wrong so fast.

When my school, the Center for Digital Imaging Arts, decided to have an exhibit featuring student, alumni, and faculty work of the marathon and the aftermath, I knew I wanted to be involved. I submitted a photo I took that day of the race from where I was standing most of the morning, on the corner of Hereford and Boylston. The work will be for sale with all proceeds going to the One Fund! If you're interested in checking it out, there will be an opening reception on Friday but the show will be up until September 13. Here are the details:
