The day I arrived we headed to Lexington Square. As we arrived we saw all kinds of flashy
lights and decorated cars sitting around a monument to the minutemen.
How patriotic and moving to see this jeep, painted like our flag, standing in front of the symbol of the men who fought to establish a free and independent country. The jeep was part of a 21 car caravan, which started in California and will end up in NYC for the 9/11/ celebration and memorial. The other 20 cars were police cruisers, each one representing a different site, etc. For example, one cruiser had the names of all those killed in the Twin Tower disaster, another car the names of those lost on the plane which crashed and on and on, even to listing the names of those who have died in combat since 9/11. It was very emotional for me, yet I was so glad I got to see this display.
While walking along the downtown harbor we stopped and watched these young men perform. They were really good.
This is only a taste of what we did and what we saw. I wish I could show you everything, but that would take way too long. I guess you'll just have to come out to Boston and see for yourself.
