I am sure by now everyone is sick of hearing about the city of Boston and the bombing that happened at the Marathon and I can fully understand that sentiment and actually feel the same way seeing it on the news non stop for a week but the one thing that resonated with me and DWTS tonight was how tired and worn out Aly looked and sounded.
This has effected me more than I ever thought it would too. I was only minutes away from the bomber the other night when they closed down Watertown and surrounding cities near Boston and it pretty much freaked me out big time. I have been to the Watertown mall more times than I can count and it is hella scary to think I could have been there with my baby nieces and nephew at any given time.
So before people judge Aly too harshly and say she is milking this for sympathy votes think about being 18 years old and knowing that if you weren’t on Dancing with the stars you could have been right in the path of a bomb that killed 3 innocent people and injured over 150 people. If I am having a hard time dealing with being this close imagine how Aly feels.
