When Terrorism Comes To YOUR Backyard When the two bombs blew my city apart at 2:50 pm on April 15, 2013, I was leading my group on the Cultural Caribbean Cruise that had been planned for more than a year. We had just docked in San Juan, Puerto Rico and I was able to turn my phone back on and check my email massages. As I finished that task and prepared to get off the ship to enjoy parts of the island, my phone rang. It was my childhood friend, Denise Gray Felder, calling in a panic. “Carole! Where are you? Are you and Michelle safe?” How close are you to the explosion that just happened at the finish line of the Boston Marathon?”
I thanked my friend for calling and reassured her that we were thousands of miles away from the scene of the amazing event. I collected my thoughts, wiped the shock off my face, and desperately searched the internet for more information on this breaking story. I had just sent off unrelated emails to friends and colleagues and learned that one friend had just handed the award to the winning female marathon runner more than half an hour before the first bomb exploded.
I took this terrorist act PERSONALLY. These two demonic young monsters tried to destroy MY city.
And as the chair of the Multicultural Committee of the Greater Boston Convention and Visitors Bureau, I took these bombings PERSONALLY. Our committee and our Bureau have worked for nearly 20 years to eradicate the stigma of racial hostility that still lingers with some people. This incident was a personal affront to all of the efforts of our committee and Bureau. I was concerned that it would further hurt the Boston brand and keep diverse conventions, conferences, meetings and family reunions away from our city.
Join me in today’s program and learn why Boston is MY city...a Boston Strong city.
Join me on this special episode of Own Your Life as we reflect and remember the Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013. Special guest callers will include runners from last year's race, Becca Pizzi and Ken Doucette. Rick Pizzi of Pizzi Farms in Waltham, Mass will be joining the discussion. What lessons have we learned in the years that followed? We will discuss the resilient nature of the people of Boston and how this tragedy brought a community and a nation together to become Boston Strong. We will also discuss the impact of the bombings on security measures at different venues. We will describe how people can be aware of their surroundings during large events. I will also give some of my reflections from my crisis response to Boston during the bombings.
This week, Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson takes on the Boston Marathon Bombings and the age-old question of security vs. liberty. At the Roundtable are Juliette Kayyem, columnist for the Boston Globe and a mainstay on CNN throughout its coverage of the events; Senator for Massachusetts William “Mo” Cowan; Eric Hauser, democratic strategist and owner of the progressive communications firm, the Hauser Group; and Harvard Law Professor Ronald Sullivan.
Is there really such a thing as national security? What are our privacy rights as we grapple with the threat of domestic terror? Did the incident leave public officials wishing for some absent tool of government to improve safety now or in the future?
Roundtable guests take on these questions and more, all while listeners ask questions and share their experiences about the bombing and its aftermath. Time to gather at the Roundtable as Stephanie Robinson leads the discussion on hot topics, deep talk and a little bit of uplift. Roundtable with Stephanie Robinson...pull up a chair.

The horrific bombings at the finish line of the Boston Marathon has had a profound impact on all of us whether we were there or watching on TV. The images are forever part of our lives now.
Events of this magnitude have the potential to cause Post Traumatic Stress (PTSD). What is happening is, the brain is having great difficulty filtering and understanding the information. It is trying to process the experience or visuals. The result is can cause stress with symptoms ranging from anxiety, disrupted sleeping patterns, anger, sadness, fear and loss of appetite.
It is often thought that PTSD occurs only to those who experience a severe trauma like war. But this is not the case. An event like the bombings can traumatize and cause PTSD to those who only see it on TV.

Samiyyah Saafir-Muhammad was born Jacqueline Glover in New York City in 1951. After spending her early years in foster care, moving four times before the age of three, she settled in with her aunt, following her father’s passing.
While still in elementary school Samiyyah took an interest in helping other students do well, joining “The Future Teachers’ Club” in the fifth grade. As a high school student, Samiyyah became aware her people’s struggle for freedom—witnessing civil rights demonstrations, protests, assassinations and riots—and decided she wanted to help somehow. It was in this atmosphere that she went off to Northeastern University in Boston where she majored in Education. Her stay there was short-lived, however, as she was introduced to the teachings of The Honorable Elijah Muhammad and thereafter joined the Nation of Islam. Within the Nation of Islam’s Muhammad University, Samiyyah underwent educational training and worked as a teacher’s assistant.
Since 2005, Samiyyah has had the privilege of serving as the Directress at Muhammad University of Islam in Atlanta, which serves students from Pre-K to the eighth grade. She has been blessed to carry on the 84-year educational tradition, which was started by the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and his brave followers in the 1930’s.
A widow after 35 years of marriage, Samiyyah presently enjoys the blessing of her and her husband’s nine children: six sons and three daughters, all of whom attended or are attending HBCUs. Samiyyah has been a mother to not only her nine children, but also to her two stepchildren, her nieces and nephews, her eight grandchildren and countless other children and adults in the community who come to her for advice, wisdom and guidance. Affectionately called MamaMiyyah, Samiyyah’s house is never empty.
