It's difficult not to be moved by the tragic events surround the recent bombing at the Boston Marathon earlier this week. But it is even more so moving for people that are from that city or region, or have spent any amount of time there.
UFC president Dana White is one of the people that has spent a lot of time living in and visiting Boston. It's one of his favorite places.
Like most of us, he has been hard hit by the emotion of the recent happenings there. He is, however, in a unique position to be able to do something about it.
No, he can't go there and take it all back, make it all go away like it never happened. But White can go there and he can have an effect on people's lives and try to help, in some small way, make things better, and that is what he intends to do.
Say what you want about UFC president Dana White (pictured), and the Culinary Union certainly has, but you better include generous and caring in your analysis. White, who lived in Boston for many years, will be making a trip back to his old stomping grounds to open up his ears, heart and wallet to several of the victims from Monday’s Boston Marathon bombings.
“The Boston thing has obviously affected me pretty strongly because I lived there,” White shared following Saturday’s UFC on FOX 7 post-fight press conference. “I know people there, and the story that really gets me is the mother that was crossing the finish line and the 8-year-old that was killed and the 6-year-old that lost her leg by a couple of [expletive] cowards.”
