The tragedy in Boston really struck home with Gainesville resident and local writer Shelley Fraser Mickle. She lived in Boston for several years while her husband, retired Shands pediatric neurosurgeon Parker Mickle trained in hospitals there. Her husband also ran the Boston Marathon several times. She talked with Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Donna Green-Townsend about some of the positive and negative outcomes of the marathon bombings.
