The Boston bombings remind us how closely connected Charlottesville is to the rest of the world.

When news first spread, local residents’ immediate reaction was concern for those from Charlottesville who were participating in the marathon or were cheering on the participants.

Similarly on 9/11, this community was closely connected to Wall Street through the University of Virginia’s Darden Business School, which had sent so many of its graduates to the Street; to the Pentagon, through what was then known as the JAG program at UVa’s law school, as well as through the local defense industry; and even to the airlines, through locally based pilots and colleagues.

It’s not just mass media that link us so closely today with cities as distant as Boston; it’s real connections with real people in those cities.

It’s personal. Very personal.
