Katie Armiger Honors Those Who Served One Year Ago During The Boston Marathon Bombings
Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings and will be a day of remembrance to the three people who died, the injured, and the first responders.
Country vocalist Katie Armiger joined the plight of first responders in January of last year when her album Fall Into Me was released and featured 'Safe,' a song penned by she and fellow songwriter Mallary Hope.
'Project Feel Safe' is a National awareness campaign to honor the brave men and women who keep us safe and the families who love them. Visit the website at YouMakeMeFeelSafe.com to learn more.
Armiger has also been on a 'Project Feel Safe' Tour that hopes to raise awareness about the dedication of our nation's first responders. Many of the tour stops were private events that she has hosted with the sole purpose of giving thanks these firefighters and their families.
Last December she spent time with the Boston Firefighters Local 718, whom you see featured in the above video tribute. "Our nation will never forget the tragedy of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings," reads a quote on the website, "The first responders of Boston rushed to the scene and began restoring order and responding to the wounded. Their bravery was the beginning of healing, not just for the victims and their families, but for the community of Boston and the nation that would give their support."
