On the eve of the Boston Marathon, we at Spartan Race, along with the country, pay tribute to all the victims and survivors of last year’s attack. Pictured are athletes and citizens who lived through the events and won’t let tragedy grind them to a halt. This series shot by Robert X. Fogerty for Dear World captures the resilience of those affected that can’t be dampened. Please visit their site to learn more about these people’s stories and pay tribute.
Boston is as strong as community as the world has. We are proud to be part of it. On Marathon Monday, we will be there and along with the rest of the world, we will be watching a city recover as one.
These images reminded me of something Sam Seaborn (Rob Lowe) says in the West Wing episode “Isaac and Ishmael”
GIRL 1 You know a lot about terrorism? SAM I dabble. GIRL 1 What are you struck by most? SAMIt’s 100% failure rate.GIRL 1 Really? SAM Not only do terrorists always fail at what they’re after, they pretty much always succeed in strengthening whatever it is they’re against.
