REVOLUTIONARY TALES – BOSTON , MASSACHUSETTS – RETURN TO KENMORE SQUARE .

You  and  the  girls  are  on  the  third  day  of  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston .

All  five  of  you  are  very  excited .

You’re  in  Kenmore  Square ,  not  only  the  home  of  Fenway  Park ,  but  it’s  also  the  train  station  where  you  all  used  to  get  off  for  some  of  your  classes .

One  of  them  sees  a  very  familiar  sight .

It’s  one  of  the  unofficial  landmarks  of  the  city .

The  red  and  white  Citgo  Gas  Sign .

Even  though  it’s  close  by  the  Kenmore  Square  T  stop ,  the  five  of  you  are  going  to  the  sprawling  urban  campus  of  Boston  University .

The  five  of  you  are  walking  down  Commonwealth  Avenue  from  the  beginning  of  Boston  University  all  the  way  to  the  end  of  the  school , which  is  in  the  neighborhood  of  Brighton .

Commonwealth  Avenue  is  known  to  everyone  who  has  ever  lived  in  or  born  in  Boston  as  ”  Comm  Ave .  ”

You  all  expected  the  campus  to  change  somewhat  since  you  have  graduated ,  but  not  like  this .

It’s  as  though  they  tore  down  all  the  old  buildings  and  replaced  them  with  not  only  apartments  that  look  like  boutique  hotels ,  but  also  shops ,  restaurants ,  and  clubs  that  none  of  you  have  heard  of .

The  Boston  University  Bookstore  where  you  all  brought  your  books  is  still  there ,  but  even  that  has  changed .

It  seems  to  be  expanded  a  lot .

Even  the  hotel  where  all  of  your  parents  stayed  at  for  your  graduation  is  still  there ,  but  like  the  rest  of  the  neighborhood ,  its  changed  also .

You  all  pass  by  some  of  the  school  buildings .

One  of  which  is  the  School  of  Divinity .

Some  of  you  had  Religion ,  Philosophy ,  and  Theology  classes  in  this  building .

At  one  tim

e ,  Doctor  Martin  Luther  King  Jr  attended  the  Divinity  School .

Being  on  campus  brought  back  good  and  bad  memories  for  all  five  of  you .

Your  tour  of  Boston  University  is  over ,  now  it’s  time  to  walk  back  down  Commonwealth  Avenue  towards  Lansdowne  Street .

This  is  where  the  five  of  you  used  to  hang  out  when  the  Red  Sox  baseball  games  were  over .

There  were  so  many  clubs  on  this  street  to  go  to .

That  hasn’t  changed .

You  and  your  girlfriends  plus  some  of  your  classmates  used  to  have  a  great  time  going  to  both  the  clubs  and  the  Red  Sox  games ,  no  matter  if  the  team  won  or  not .

One  of  them  remembered  that  wonderful  smell  of  those  mouthwatering  Sausage ,  Onions ,  and  Green  and  Red  Peppers  sandwiches  sold  by  the  vendors  outside  of  Fenway  Park .

You’re  getting  hungry  just  thinking  about  those  sandwiches .

As  much  as  you  want  to remember  the  good  times ,  it’s  time  to  create  more  memories  of your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  Boston .

The  five  of  you  are  going  to  meet  up  with  some  other  college  friends  who  unlike  the  five  of  you  stayed  in  Boston  after  college .
