People in every town say it: That would never happen here.
But it did happen, in my hometown of Danvers, Mass.
I don’t live there anymore, and aside from six months in 1997-98, and college breaks, I truly haven’t lived full time in Danvers since I left for college in 1987.
But it will always be my hometown.
So, like many others, I was devastated this morning when I read about a 14-year-old boy, a recent transplant from Tennessee, who had been reported missing.
