Matt Emerson WBNL BostonAt the northern end of the Big Dig project in Boston stands the impressive Leonard P. Zakim Bunker Hill Bridge. It’s a contemporary landmark in a city that is steeped with history.

Zakim was a civil rights leader who worked, among other things, as the New England Director of the Anti-Defamation League. He also brought together people of different racial and religious backgrounds to an annual Seder in Boston. His fight to end racism and poverty was his passion and it lives on today through the foundations and organizations he touched.

On June 17, 1775 the Colonist and British began their confrontation to control Boston Harbor and beyond. Although the Colonist, far short on manpower, gave the British a run for their money, they retreated toward Cambridge -losing that battle but inevitably winning the war.

Boston is an incredible place to wander. Get Up and Get Out. Be forever Wandering But Not Lost
