A new book has been published by the Boston College Presidential Scholars Class of 2016 that examines what makes Boston Strong – and what is needed to make it stronger. The Heart of This City: Boston Strong and Becoming Stronger features interviews with victims of and witnesses to the bombings, as well as with people connected to Boston-based social services agencies, who all reflect on the Boston Strong message. The bookopens with a letter from Boston Mayor (and BC alumnus) Marty Walsh and includes reflections on the marathon bombings, as well as sections on homelessness, health inequity, immigration and educational disparity in Boston. A number of BC faculty members also contributed to the book. For the Presidential Scholars, the message of The Heart of This City is simple: “We are members of the same city and we need to take care of one another.” More from the Boston College Chronicle.
