My Revere Attitude

by Bill Brenner on March 12, 2013

I could tell you I’m a real bad-ass because I grew up in Revere, Mass. But that would be a lie.

Since I’ve reconnected with quite a few of my old Revere neighbors of late, it seems appropriate that I feature some of the blog posts that focus on my Point-of-Pines childhood.

Mood music:

AND THE SEA WILL SAVE YOU: The memories are still stained with sorrow. But, truth be told, the location of my upbringing is one of the things that saved me.

ZANE FROM THE POINT OF PINES, REVERE: I keep thinking of a kid from the Point of Pines who isn’t with us anymore.
