    Bread for Boston?!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Boston University student Aida Saam spotted a truck full of loaves of bread on campus yesterday but she and her friends couldn’t find the owner of the vehicle. 'We did not see anybody take any bread, but a lot of spectators were taking pictures of it. Some friends and I assumed it was being saved from being thrown away; maybe the owner was going to donate it? Give it to the homeless? Feed the ducks at the park? It's a mystery!' she said.

    Her goal in sharing this image was to show people what Boston is really like. 'As a member of the Boston community we understand the bombings and manhunt were a huge captivating news piece, but we definitely don't want to always be remembered for that. We want the world to see what we see every day: that Boston is a beautiful place,' she said.
