During a somber sad day yesterday where we had lots of time to talk and commiserate (as with most of the Square, activity was unusually low) we decided that doing good and being kind will be the best way to lift our spirits going forward. I know that the Cambridge and Boston communities do this on a daily basis already, I've watched so many acts of kindness in the neighborhoods over the years, and it's going to be especially important now.
So at this point, I am asking people to continue to "vote" with their dollars, support the local institutions that you love and appreciate, it's YOUR community, and although you share it with the world, you make it what it is. Let's not lose any more of our independent local stores and businesses, it's what makes us unique and authentic.
Peace, Susan and staff
