As residents of Boston and the surrounding areas attempted to heal in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings, two words brought everyone together and helped the process along — Boston Strong.
Those words were and continue to be a message of unity and defiance. A message that says they can handle anything thrown their direction and bounce back with the same strength and determination they’ve always had. It’s a powerful message, too, and no organization embraced it or embodied it more in the weeks and months that followed the tragedy than the eventual World Series champion Boston Red Sox.
