Salem MainStreets, like many other community organizations watched the events of last week unfold in horror. Out of respect for the fallen and injured, we back-pedaled on self-promotion. A tweet here and there, some calendar entries, but for the most part we were glued to the TV and read social media to be in touch. Just like all of you.

“Freedom Is Not Free” (engraved on the Washington, D.C. Korean War Veterans Memorial). It must be tended to, watched and guarded. Boston, with the emotional support of Salem, NYC, Chicago and the rest of America did just that this past week.

Because of that we can return to our lives, and enjoy the benefits of living in communities like Salem and Boston.
