CB’s Open Mic: Boston Bruins Fans Sing the National Anthem Wednesday 04.17.2013, plus a Personal Tribute
by CB on April 18, 2013

Boston, this one’s for you. And please know, we are all with you.

Anthem (for Boston)

We run ourselves ragged in today’s race
Our feet pitter pattering off the ground
Stare down at our phones in every place
Communicating with barely a sound

We forget what it’s like to be together
our minds scattered across comment pages
No need to ask, “Hey, how is the weather?”
All of the talk stops as quiet rages

But then the news breaks across several feeds
that two bombs have burst in the Boston air
and from that finish line to shining seas
their limbs — and our hearts — break everywhere

The silence breaks on a crisp Boston night

“…and the home of the brave…”
WE got that right
