Patriots’ Day (officially Patriots’ Day in Massachusetts and Wisconsin and Patriot’s Day in Maine[1]) is an official state holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War. The holiday was originally celebrated on April 19, the actual anniversary of the battles (fought in 1775).

Since 1969, it has been observed on the third Monday in April inMassachusetts[2] and in Maine,[3] (which until the mid-19th century was part of Massachusetts). The Monday holiday creates a three-day long weekend. It is also the first day of a vacation week for public schools in both states and a school holiday for many local colleges and universities, both public and private.

The day is a public school observance day in Wisconsin.[4] Florida law also encourages people to celebrate it, though it is not treated as a public holiday.[5]

Observances and re-enactments of the battles occur annually atLexington Green in Lexington, Massachusetts (around 6:00 am) and the Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts (around 9:00 am). In the morning, mounted re-enactors with state police escorts retrace the Midnight Rides of Paul Revere and William Dawes, calling out warnings the whole way.

The biggest celebration of Patriots’ Day is the Boston Marathon, which has been run every Patriots’ Day since April 19, 1897 to mark the then-recently established holiday, with the race linking the Athenian and American struggles for liberty[6] (marathons being so named after the Greek Battle of Marathon).

Nearing the anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing, Dr. Lant is presenting his book

“Boston, April 15, 2013
Too painful to remember.
Too important to forget.”

Here’s some excerpts from his book:


When I think about those days, I see sickening loss and
astonishing courage. I see everyday people who, at the
need, become real life heroes. I see butchery, and I see
selflessness beyond mere words. I see tears which will
break your heart, and I see tears that will not be daunted,
propelling as they do a great city to return to its immemorial
mission on the Hill, where all the world may see it and

This was Boston April 15, 2013, and like everyone else
I had a role to play; a role each of us would never forget.
Mine started when a friend called me, shouting to turn on
the television where life and death were engaged in another
episode of their epic battle; where the stakes could not
possibly be greater, or so we thought before they were.

Officer Sean Collier, aged 26.

The body of the slain security guard had already been removed;
a riot of flashing lights took its place. Just moments before this
guard had been young, a loving father and spouse; an expert
at joshing with the M.I.T. students who had reason to thank him
for his smile and light touch. Now riddled with bullets he was a thing
of horror and regret.

The murderer had fired and fired and fired into the slumped body;
Then he maneuvered the get-away car up Massachusetts Avenue,
towards the heart of my neighborhood, red splotches a la Picasso
marking the way.

The terror begun earlier this day now had new tasks to do, more
grisly promises to keep, more miles to go before it would sleep,
and the neighborhood try to regain the peace if had once known and
for so many years. Peace! The very word reeked of irony now.

“When do you want me to start?” “Now!”

I was asleep when the phone rang. It was CNN Manitoba, Canada
Was I aware that  I was the only journalist  inside the perimeter;
that all the other journalists were being kept from the story by the
police who didn’t understand those journalists would give anything
to be in the story….like I was.  But the authorities had determined
my role in the bloody and fast-moving events now taking place
on the doorstep.

Could I provide commentary on the events at hand? “When?,” I
asked. “Now!” And so one minute after I picked up the phone,
exhausted, disheveled , dismayed by the unfolding events, I was
on the air. I had been born for this moment…

Later CNN told me over one billion people worldwide heard my
programs. I was running on pure adrenaline  But I was never alone.

I had the full support and assistance of CNN; too, of the late
Elizabeth (“Liz”) English, and  from  Larry Spagnold who advised
CNN to contact me. You ride in my heart, always with me.

Just 8 then,  just 11 now. Martin Richard.

I also did it for Martin, the boy cut down in his joy and the full measure
of his love and devotion.

“Peace”, he said “No more hurting people”, he said.

Pray for us, Martin. Pray for us all. We need you so.

Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling…:
