Q: : In what ways do you feel NeighborMedia – and your role as a citizen journalist – has benefited the community?

A: Prior to becoming a NeighborMedia correspondent five or six years ago, I was already active in the arts community, participating in Cambridge Open Studios and in my local neighborhood arts association.

This article was originally posted two years ago in response to the Boston Marathon bombings.

One week later, and five are dead, some 180 injured and an entire metropolitan area is changed forever.

We all know what happened on April 15, Marathon Monday, Patriots’ Day of 2013. Two bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. I saw the explosions happen from about two blocks away. The chaotic moments that ensued - and the looks on people's faces as they changed from joy to fear and grief - I won't soon forget.
