It gave me goosebumps when i heard it on the radio this morning. ESPN radio was playing it at the top of every hour. How i wish we could all come together as a country again much like the folks of Boston did last night.

Good post Chuck.

My sons had baseball practice this evening. I talked with the coach who was at the game last night. He said that he could feel that this was going to happen and that by the end there was not a dry eye in the house.
