    As someone who grew up in Boston, I still consider myself a Bostonian, even though I have lived in DC for 21 years. Today my church held a prayer service. We all also lit candles. I have my flag and Boston T-shirt hanging from my living room window. My thoughts and prayers go out not only to the victims, but to all my family and friends still there as well as the entire city. Peace and love.
