Yesterday, in the heart of our beloved city, a horrible catastrophe struck our community. All Bostonians are with great sadness mourning the loss of two very courageous men. The fire in the Back Bay yesterday that took the lives of Firefighter Michael R. Kennedy and Lieutenant Edward J. Walsh from Engine 33 Firehouse on Boylston Street was a complete and utter tragedy.
Words cannot even express how our hearts reach out to everyone affected.
Firemen risk their lives saving others every second of every day they are on the job. They never know how dangerous each call and situation will be. Suffolk University’s local neighbors are the members of the Beacon Hill Firehouse on Cambridge Street. The firefighters there are such a great bunch, my friends and I feel so safe knowing they are always right around the corner. The city streets can feel precarious at times as most city streets can; but a friendly wave, smile and watchful eye from our “guardian angels” always make us feel protected.
Boston firefighters…you are all in our hearts and on our minds. We love and appreciate you endlessly. Our deepest compassion is extended to all family and loved ones of the fallen men. Together, we will rise and stay strong as a community.
Boston firefighters, and firefighters all around, we love you and thank you for all that you do every single second of every single day.
Boston Strong ❤
