Here is an unusual recovery story. From the NYT: How the Red Sox became a main symbol of Boston’s recovery from Marathon bombing. An excerpt:
The bombing aftermath has become a model for other communities dealing with tragedy and trauma. A study by Harvard University labeled the local and national response, “the ingenuity of swarm intelligence.” In Boston, there was no singular leader, but rather a collective sense of responsibility. Trust and cooperation were key. Relationships mattered. Egos were set aside so that individuals could do their jobs, then ask if they could do more.
