26 miles of natural yellow

By on

26 miles of natural yellow eternally sprouting every spring along the marathon route is a fitting memorial and a giant middle finger towards those which only want to inflict death.

How is it fitting?

I don't get how specifically daffodils equate to a giant middle finger or why a giant middle finger is a good memorial.

They are yellow (gold) like the main color of the BAA logo and will continue to sprout every spring as a symbol of eternal life.

A figurative middle finger but a giant one nonetheless

"Fight and slay the Pagans wherever you find them . . . those who reject our signs we shall soon cast into the fire . . . those who disbelieve, garments of fire will be cut out for them; boiling fluid will be poured down on their heads . . . as to the deviators, they are the fuel of hell." -- The Holy Koran

I won't speak for Love it on Mon, but I like the middle finger comment. When viewed from their point of origin (above), sure, the jihadists killed four disbelievers and maimed dozens of others but this region's response, from the Muslim terrorists being brought to swift justice to last night's Norden brother's fundraiser at the Forum, to the daffodils next year and everything in between, sends a strong message (middle finger) to other jihadists who would do us further harm. They'll be back, no doubt but probably not here for a while.

I wondered what all those

I wondered what all those people were doing digging along Beacon St last weekend. I think it's great. I can't wait to see them bloom next spring. I can't wait for next spring. Are we there yet?
