Boston Marathon: We Remember One Who Fell
This Holy Week--seems appropriate to tell this story...To understand the heart break, pathos and courage of last year's Boston Marathon--we need to focus on the human side. Someone who was a casualty on that jubilant day that turned into a nightmare.
Jeff Bauman was standing on the sidelines waiting for his girl friend to run across the finish line in Boston. The bomb went off. This is his story as told by Josh Hayner who won a Pulitzer for the New York Times for photography.
Jeff Bauman is truly a profile in courage. Read it and weep and rejoice in the human spirit.
