I'm an MIT alum, and I've spent this week feeling sick to my stomach and helpless in the face of the atrocities happening in Boston.
Hearing of the death of Officer Sean Collier, a young police officer much beloved by the MIT community, broke my heart. Tonight, I will be raising my glass in his memory.
I don't want to feel helpless anymore, and I want to show Boston's first responders that the rest of the country feels their pain. Help me raise money to buy Boston a beer. I'm hoping that if I can get some money raised and some interest going, I can find a brewery (either local to me in Milwaukee, or in Boston) that will help me with the purchasing and distribution to the police officers, fire fighters, EMTs, doctors, nurses, volunteers, and everyone else who has stepped up to help save lives and rebuild Boston.
