MIT students made a tribute page for their police officer who was gunned down by the Boston bombers. I imagine the officer never thought he was so close to this disaster.
I didn’t know you, but I remember your car parked between Koch and Stata every time I’d go to 7/11 late at night. I am brown and a foreigner so usually American police make me a little nervous, but I recall passing by you one time and deciding that I liked you, because you looked unusually nice and trustworthy, and I kindof wanted to offer you my sour candy but thought it would be too random. Now I wish I had done it anyway. Thank you for making me feel safe even from a distance. RIP.
