Wednesday letters: Bostonians loyal, hard-working

May 1, 2013 

We know Boston is resilient. Our country’s founding history is a testament to that very fact. Massachusetts is a state steeped in history, and Boston is its core. The people there are steadfast, hard-working and loyal to a degree that is hard to describe in words. It is seen in sights, sounds and the faces of its citizens. If you spend time there, you will observe that sense of loyalty and appreciate the hard-fought freedoms that allow you to visit Quincy Market, walk the Freedom Trail, attend a Red Sox game or look out over the Back Bay.

If you live there for any amount of time, loyalty, hard work and steadfastness will seep into your daily life. You will feel compelled to push yourself harder in your work, support your community with added stamina, track current events more consistently, read your history more intensely and follow every sporting event with increased vigor. You can’t help it. It is in the air you breathe. You are proud to be a part of the climate that gave us the heart and soul of a country that is free and very resilient.
