      So after a "fun" day at work today due to one store calling 3 times for the same thing in a 30 min time period, I come home from work and turn on the news cause sports was on an I wanted to hear about the All Star game for the MLB and I see that the next story after sports is about Rolling Stone Magazine using a picture of Suspect #2 as its cover photo. Like really? The little f$&ker and his brother kill 4 people(Krystle Campbell, Lu Lingzi, M.I.T Officer Sean Collier and 8 year old Martin Richard) and injured hundreds and they have the "coconuts" to post that? I hope they go out of business soon. Come on technology don't let me down.

      First day back at work after RTX and I can already tell you I don't want to be back here. Wish I was still in Austin for RTX.

      RTX is over and all I can say is I wish it wasn't. Dreading heading back to Plymouth and living my life for 353 days until I can come back here again. In my past week here I have meet some amazing people. Sunday was a hard day to say bye to everyone. But we will all stay in contact. The highlight of my little vacation was getting to meet my hero Georff Ramsey. I had a great time in Austin and now I can't wait till next year to come back and do it again.

      On April 20th the Boston Red Sox did a tribute to the Boston Marathon. Another touching moment when they had Dick and Rick Hoyt a father and son team that for 31 years have been running the marathon, Dick Hoyt pushes his son on a wheelchair and promises to continue the tradition of running next year, Firefighter Matt Patterson who used his belt to stop the bleeding of a young boy and saved his life as well as others and Steven Byrne who protected his friends and was thrown over a fence when he was protecting them and need to have surgery to fix scars on his face. who all threw out the first pitch in the game. Neil Diamond flew in to Boston to sing 'Sweet Caroline' during the 7th inning steach during the game. And David 'Big Papi' Ortiz gave a speech after the first pitching saying that the jersey's don't say Red Sox but Boston instead to symbolize they are whole, and that 'This is out F@%KING CITY'. No matter what happens in sports this year and following years this is one of many years to add to the list of times that no matter where you are from we are all one city and that rivalries are put aside and we all fight together. And no matter what those days will always be tough on any Bostonian.

      Being from Plymouth, Massachusetts and having my home attacked back in April with the bombings on one of the most important day in Boston history. This video right here is and always will be a great showing of how Boston truly is BOSTON STRONG!!!!!!!!

      On a simple Monday back in April skies were cleared and the weather was nice and warm. The Boston Red Sox had just beat the Tampa Bay Rays 3-2. I had just arrived at work like a typical work day. walking around and working my shift when all of a sudden my phone starts to blow up with text messages from ESPN and 98.5 The Sports Hub about an explosion going happening at the Finish Line of the Boston Marathon. 10 mins later myself and fellow security officers were called into the office and we briefed on the situation by Kingston Police Department and what had been told to Boston PD and Boston FD. We knew before many news company that there were 3 confirmed deaths but never knew the ages or genders. During the briefing a call was received from the Security Director at Faneuil Hall asking for a few officers to go into Boston and help with a detail. Myself and 2 other officers volunteered to go up there without second thought. While on our way in there we passed traffic trying to get out of Boston and had no traffic what so ever heading into Boston. We all agreed that heading into was one of the most erie feeling that we have ever felt. While in Boston we saw Boston Police, Weymouth Police, Everett Police S.W.A.T teams walking around Faneuil Hall. I even saw a couple of Police officers from my town of Plymouth. While we were there we started to get nervous that there could be another explosion and that we might be caught in the middle. When midnight finally came we left Faneuil Hall and while on the way home no word was spoken between the three of us. We knew we had worried loved ones back home. When we all got back to our homes none of us slept at all. 3 days later on Thursday the 3 of us went out and were glued to the tv the day the FBI announced they had 2 suspects. Later on Thursday night I was sitting at home playing Call Of Duty with some friends and had the radio going when I heard that an M.I.T officer was shot and killed by the 2 brothers who were the suspects in the bombings and that Massachusetts State Police, Boston Police and others were chasing after the 2 of them. I then ended my game and shut off my xbox and turned on the news. When word went out that Suspect 1 had been killed by the police I cheered louder then ever and knew we would get suspect 2 one way or another. I stayed glued to the TV as long as i could listening to what was going on. The next morning I went to and was working with one of the officers i went to into Boston with on Monday night. We were talking about them catching suspect number 1 and that his uncle who is a Sergeant with the State Police called him and told him to get to the barracks to help get ammo and magazines ready for later that day. As well on Friday the whole city of Boston was on lock down and no one was allowed to leave their houses. On April 19th, 2013 Boston, Massachusetts was a ghost town except for Police and FBI driving around. All day Friday I drove around in out Security truck and listened to 98.5 The Sports Hub and they were broadcasting what was being shown by news station WBZ. Word was that suspect number 2 was hiding some where in Watertown but his location was unknown. Later that night I went back to watching the news and it was confirmed that suspect 2 was hiding in a boat in someone's back yard. All night long along with millions of people around the USA my eyes were glued to the news waiting for them saying that suspect 2 was in custody. As time went on they kept a shot of the boat he was hiding on the screen and showed reporters that were around the area and what their reports on the situation was. At 8:42pm word went out that suspect 2 was in police custody. I was cheering and jumping up and down with joy, knowing that the 2 suspect who caused pain to my state was finally in custody. That night as well Mayor Tom Menino went across the radio and thank every officer involved with the search. A month ago I was talking to a friend of mine who is a Massachusetts State Police officer was telling me that he was one of the cars that chased after suspect number 2 when he fled the shooting on Thursday night. He told that he never showed it but he had fear that he could be injured or worse while chasing him. He also said that the night they captured suspect 2 if the FBI didn't take over then every cop there would have unloaded all their clips into the boat the suspect 2 was hiding out in. There are nights since this event and time in my life that I can't sleep after having images in my dreams of the bombings happening again and that friends and family where involved in them.

      On April 17th the Boston Bruins played their first game at home since the bombings and that night fans gathered together to sing the National Anthem over the great Rene Rancourt. A sight that brings chills to me every time I hear it or see it being done. The New York Yankees a rival of the Boston Red Sox posted on their screen the Yankees logo and the Red Sox logo, and in between both logos was written 'United We Stand'. During the Yankees game and other baseball games in the 7th inning fans gathered together to sing 'Sweet Caroline' a Red Sox tradition that is done at every home game, a moment that showed that no matter what rivals gather together help one another when there is troubling times.
