Upon reflecting on the events from last year to yesterday, we have seen humanity from it’s darkest crevices to it’s finest triumph of compassion and resolve to thrive, not in spite of but because of the unspeakable horrors. We came together as a city from all walks of life, from all sectors of work to help each other in unending waves of loving support.
Of the many delights in showing our undaunted will, courage, and heart, I find so fitting that the term “Boston Strong” bubbled up organically and was coined by the people and used for the people. And, so there it will remain. For all to use for the benefit of all!
So writes the US Patent and Trademark office ” the motto or slogan, ‘BOSTON STRONG,’ emerged, representing ‘a proud mix of resiliency and defiance, an attitude rooted in local culture,” and consequently has denied multiple applications to trademark the slogan.
“Boston is the only city in America that will shut itself down to chase these terrorists,” famously retorted on comedian.
Resilience. Defiance. Attitude. Undaunted. Thriving. Soaring.
This is Boston Strong 2014!
