I had planned to post a few speech/classroom ideas today, but in light of all the recent events, it just doesn’t feel right. Rather, I will write in honor, memory and respect of all the victims of Monday’s events, of all the law enforcement and first responders, and of anyone has ever called Boston home.
– a nightmare for speech therapists who like to work on /r/ (where did you pahk yah cah?)
– home to cat size rats (I’ll spare you a picture).
– a city with more than 60 colleges within its surround areas. That’s a lot of smart and/or drunk young adults!
– walkable from one end to the other, in less time than you can drive across LA.
– a mecca for all library enthusiasts.
– a giant wind tunnel, especially on Comm. Ave.
– a bad place to try and own an umbrella for more than a month (they can’t stand the wind and just break/blow away).
– the best place to celebrate the fourth of July.
– the only city that can justify not one, but TWO holidays to public debauchery and mayhem (3/17: Evacuation Day/St. Patrick’s Day & Patriot’s Day: 3rd Monday of April/Marathon Monday).
– full of public transit that is slower than walking. At least they try!
– one of the top cities in the national for medical research and advances.
– a place where you can hear the fans sing “Sweet Caroline” from your dorm room every home game.
– full of history, museums, and culture.
– an excellent place to find a margarita (Sunset, I’m looking at you!)
– home to the world’s greatest marathon (forever and always).
…and SO much more!!
What is your favorite piece of Boston?
