I’ve always wanted to witness a perfect game in person. It is one of the rarest feats in baseball. So far I’ve had no luck. But today I witnessed something better: a perfect day at the ballpark.

This has officially been the longest week in the history of time. I think everyone that lives in the Boston area feels the same way. And to think it hasn’t even been a week since the bombings. Like everyone else I felt the biggest sigh of relief when I heard that Suspect #2 was captured alive last night. Finally it felt safe again.

Before I went to bed I knew I had to be at today’s Sox game. I just knew it was going to be a special day at the ballpark. For me there was no better way to start the path to normalcy in Boston than going to my favorite place in the city: Fenway. So I bought a single ticket.

I couldn’t be more happy with my decision. It might have been the most memorable game I have ever been to. More…

Throughout the Greater Boston area, Marathon Monday is supposed to be a day of celebration, cheering on the thousands of runners who make the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton to Copley Square. However, Marathon Monday 2013 will not be remembered because of the race. When two bombs exploded near the finish line, the City of Boston and its surrounding communities went into a state of panic, frantically attempting to get in touch with loved ones either running the marathon or lined up along its route.

As the story continued to develop, members of the Lasell College community took to Twitter to express their sentiments on the day’s events. Many used the hashtag #PrayForBoston, while others were worried about Professor Neil Hatem and Athletic Trainer Chris Troyanos. Hatem was running and was 4-5 blocks from the finish line at the time of the explosions. Troyanos was volunteering as a trainer in Copley Square, but was also unharmed.
