Much can be said about the Boston Marathon bombing, but this wonderful cover says it all.
Magazine editor, John Wofson says:
"To me the cover is about two things: perseverance and unity. By itself, each shoe in the photograph is tiny, battered, and ordinary. Together, though, they create something beautiful, powerful, and inspirational. Remove just one shoe and you begin to diminish, in some small way, the overall effect.
Collectively, they are the perfect symbol for Boston, and for our response to the bombings."
As for me, lives will indeed be changed but it should not keep us from trying again and finishing the race.
