I’m literally dying at this Freaks and Geeks PSA about weed. Jason Segal is an addict.
“It’s a huge honor to be part of that (photo),” Chara said, according to The Boston Globe. “Very humbling that we were able to participate in such a proud moment of capturing what did happen, and more likely how the city and people and athletes, everybody, responded.”
The depth and strength of a human character are defined by its moral reserves. People reveal themselves completely only when they are thrown out of the customary conditions of their life, for only then do they have to fall back on their reserves. – Leonardo da Vinci
Life has resumed on the streets of Boston.
A year after three people were killed and more than 260 injured when two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, the city’s landscape bears few reminders of the explosions, or the ensuing manhunt for suspects that ended with the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Watertown.
On Boylston Street, the chaos and pain of that day have been replaced by the regular routines of pedestrians and drivers. Businesses are open, including the Forum restaurant, badly damaged when one bomb exploded directly outside.
This week, barricades and a viewing stand are set up near the finish line for this year’s marathon, set for Monday.
Just down the street, Copley Square became home to a spontaneous memorial. The items, including running shoes and messages, were removed in June. Some are now on view in an exhibit across the street at the Boston Public Library.
A few days after the bombing, Tsarnaev eluded capture after a gunbattle with police. Residents of Boston and surrounding communities were told to stay indoors while police went house to house searching for him. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died following the shootout with police.

There was so much smoke, and so much blood, and then suddenly it was clear, and a man was there, crouching in the road, pointing a camera at us. I thought, Why isn’t he helping? People are dying. Read more

“I glanced at the photo once, about a week after the bombing. I knew immediately I never wanted to look at it again. I never have, and I don’t think I ever will. I have enough images from that day in my head already. I don’t need another one.” - Jeff Bauman.
