PHOTO OF THE WEEK: Shoveling Off the Finish Line in Boston

“Not Just a Strip of Paint on the Road”

We woke up this morning to see this haunting picture on social media of a man
shoveling a strip in the middle of a street. With a closer look it turns out that it’s not just
any street…it’s the finish line of the Boston Marathon.

Chris Laudani, the bartender now known as the “Boston Shoveler” who runs
in the Marathon every year, meant to clear the snow so that a few people
might see the historic site that means so much to him.

He told ESPN, “The Boston Marathon is the greatest marathon in the world.
It’s a huge symbol for our city and it’s not going to be covered by snow.”

When he heard that the photo went viral and people were calling him a hero, he said no, that there were folks working around the clock clearing snow in the city. Those were the heroes.

But he was happy that everyone who saw the picture was as proud of the Marathon
and the city as he is. How can they not be anything but proud of him.

The photos in the Boston Globe speak for the courage and resilience of the Marathon runners. Below is a
powerful picture of the Corcoran family taken by the Globe staff as crowds cheered.

Celeste Corcoran, who lost both legs below the knees in the bombing, crossed the finish line
having run the last block with her daughter, Sydney (r), who was severely injured last April.
Celeste’s sister, Carmen Acabbo, joined them (l).

 

“The negative power is gone from this spot,” said Corcoran. “Terrorists never, ever, win.”
The Globe described the new tatoo on her wrist as reading, “choose to live.”
