There are two days in my life...

There are two days in my life that I am able to recall with more exact details than the rest. On September 11th, 2001, I sat in a classroom with my peers. Our principal came over the loudspeaker and told us that something very bad had happened in New York, but didn’t tell us what. Every single person in the room was quiet. I can, with exact…

The Day Before

The Boston Bombing holds a special place in my heart because I was actually touring Northeastern the day before it happened. I remember going to Boston Friday morning, excited for the two days of activities I had ahead of me. At this point in time I had already gotten in to Northeastern, but was still deciding whether or not I wanted to go. After…

Celebration On Hemenway

I posted this image on Instagram the night that 'suspect #2' was captured. My friends and I ran onto Hemenway St. and found hundreds of our classmates applauding and cheering. A few minutes in, we were hoisted onto the shoulders of our male friends, and handed a flag. I can't remember the last time I have felt so safe, happy, and proud at the same…

Bystandard to Bomb Victim- My Story (Andrew Havasy)

The Boston Marathon or as us Bostonians refer to it as Marathon Monday is always one of the biggest events in this historic city and let’s just say I picked a bad day to get my glasses fixed. The previous night a part of my glasses fell off and a small component broke off, so I woke up around mid-day to trek to Boylston Street where the…

Boston Marathon - at a slight distance

I was fortunate enough to be home during the Boston Marathon bombing. I live a short walk away from the Prudential Center, between the Pru and Northeastern University's campus. It was a day I did not have classes, but I had planned to go to the Prudential Center to run some errands and hopefully catch some of the marathon runners crossing the…

It was my fourth consecutive time running the Boston Marathon - a day that has become for me less of an annual challenge of my own personal limits and more of a day to celebrate the transcending power of the human spirit to conquer the seemingly impossible. Its not about numbers - 26.2 miles is just an example. And that recurring experience has…
