We are shaped by the strength of all the amazing adventurers, and free thinkers, that contributed in early time periods so that The Bay State can be what it is today. Strong enough to stand tall even when one of our most beloved traditions, our marathon, was assaulted by an act of violence. Even today, the people of this region are doing as they have always done, hiding from the big bad winter we have here, and celebrating the spring.
Today, Boston is a hub of high education, free thought, world class medicine, and liberalism. It is tied with Rhode Island, as the most atheist state in the union. It is often said to be the most European place in the country. Much has changed since the early days, but our heart and drive to persevere has not. We treasure our history and it serves as a life lesson for those that grow up here.
