Right now the Today Show is airing an interview with Raffaele Sollecito (aka Amanda Knox’s Italian co-defendant). NBC has chosen to air subtitles over his english. That alone is a little obnoxious. Like Iron Chef Marimoto, the guy speaks fluent English. But that’s not my problem. It is strongly implied that this interview (and the show) is live, and yet they are showing subtitles ahead of Raffaele speaking the words.
I’ve been tumblazy lately.
Huey Lewis is awesome. You’re welcome.
In my short history, I can remember the shock and utter despair felt over national tragedies. And yet, living in Boston, the pain felt disconnected. I felt immune to such things. I felt gravely naive to things like terrorism. In the deepest recesses of my brain, I couldn’t acknowledge a logic (though terror operates outside of normal logic) to an act occurring somewhere I lived or worked.
Yesterday, I made the conscious decision to work from home. I had spent several years enjoying Patriot’s/ Marathon day roaming the city. A “good view” of the Finish Line was not an incentive to commute to work through the crowds. Yes, my office is located in that city block…. I sat entranced watching our building over and over again on the news. This could have been me. We are not impervious to the great pain of the world. No one is.
Yes, we will be fearful. It is okay. It is important that we are not paralyzed by this fear. It is important to become vigilant and compassionate for those around you. It is important to not minimize the tragedy of those hurt but not magnify the act itself. We are a scrappy, artful, sensitive, richly historic, and fiercely loyal city. I am proud to be a Bostonian.
