Eyewitness to a tragedy

“IT ALL CHANGED QUICK”: Please take a moment to read this recollection and commentary from industry vet Brad Davidson, currently SVP Promo at ThinkSay Records: “I should be in London this morning; I'm not. I should be with Chris and Kerry and Mathew, taking meetings to spread our music globally; I'm not. I should be eating crisps and warm bitter, I'm not. But we don't live in a world of should. Most people didn't even know I was in Boston [Monday]. I took this picture moments before the unfortunate acts of terror took place. I stood on top of a bomb, talked to a cop, took a picture and then walked to the corner. I stopped feet away from a second bomb, took a left to go to Newbury St. to get my dogs and Tess, and it all changed quick. When the explosion happened, I thought it was fireworks and paintball guns. I called Dan because he would know what I needed done, as I was trying to get to the airport to fly to London in an hour. Halfway through the conversation, it went from bad to worse when I realized the paint was blood and immediately ran to get my family. As I ran in a panic away from the scene, I could tell that people away from it had no idea what was going on. It was very odd running through the streets of Boston knowing things were bad, and watching others enjoy the beautiful sunny day and festivities. We got home and then patrolled the streets looking for people that needed any assistance with phone, bathroom, food, etc. The more I stayed busy, the more it wasn't really real yet. I was able to speak to very few people yesterday but am very blessed by the overwhelming response from people that were happy I was safe. This morning I spoke to my friend Andrew, and it wasn't until we spoke that I realized I took video and pics of it all happening. I look at this picture and think, what if I had taken a few more pictures, or got a call, or tied my shoe. But I didn't. We don't live in a world of what if's. So I keep walking forward. If you don't think every day is a chance if nothing else but to be alive, you’re not doing it the right way.” (4/19a)
