Mayor Thomas Menino might of been the Mayor of the city of Boston, but to a Human Being of this Society here on this planet Earth, he was a great man and one that should be looked up to and looked at as a role model for all to try to achieve in being like him.
Mayor Menino was the Mayor of Boston for 20 years, the longest tenure of any Mayor of the City’s past, he gave everything to the city and the people out of the love from his heart, he loved his job, he loved his role in the community and he loved meeting with all the citizens of the city everyday of his tenure, Mayor Menino had great support around him in his Wife and family, which made his love of people flourish even that much more, if we all had just 10% of Mayor Menino’s qualities inside us, this Society and all the Planet would be a better place to live, with more love of each other instead of all the hatred that is out there.
Mayor Menino was a great man as now he is sitting in heaven with God and Jesus, may he rest in peace after all the great work he did here on Earth, prayer’s and thoughts go out to all his family and his friends, as Mr. Menino had plenty of them, Mayor Menino was a great leader and helped rejuvenate the city of Boston in many ways, as someone that lived in the city while in college at the time he first came in as Mayor, to reflect on that time to present time, he has changed the city for the better in many ways, he also treated everybody around him with respect and dignity no matter who you were, he never judged you by the way you looked on the outside, as he always saw what was on the inside and helped in any way that he could, as a great leader he knew just how to lead properly and when he needed he ruled with an iron fist, but always did it while showing you dignity and respect.
Mayor Menino was always a Human Being first and the Mayor second, with all the Boston sports teams and their championships, it was he that had the idea of the rolling rallies with the duck boats, well I say give the Mayor one last look at the city he built and changed, by giving him a ride on the duck boats through the streets of Boston, so he can have one last look of the city he loved and the people of Boston can have one last look at the Mayor they loved and held dear.
Mayor Menino may you rest in peace, as you look down on the city you loved so dearly and see the fruits of your labor prosper, as the people you love keep your memory strong in all they do, just as a true Bostonian would do in the name of #bostonstrong.
P.S. Please say hello to Martin, Linzi, Crystal and Officer Collier, let them know we all think of them often and we will never forget in our prayers.
” Mayor Menino was a great man, that put his love of his job and the city he ran for 20 years, above all else, cause he believed in everybody regardless of who you were”
” The legacy of Mayor Menino would be of, when you treat people with respect and dignity, the love will pour like water out of a faucet, with no room for any kind of hatred at all”
