In the hours after the bombings in Boston on Monday, Jack Gurnon had to make a difficult decision of whether or not to open his small hardware store on Charles Street in the city.

He decided to open the doors of Charles Street Supply Co. bright and early at 6 a.m. on Tuesday and American flags have been flying off the shelves. He said it is a symbol of Boston’s resilience and of American pride.

“As a businessman, it doesn’t matter. It’s not the point. It makes me feel really good that people would think of showing their support by buying American flags.

As the investigation is underway, Jack said the city will recover.

“Americans are the strongest people on Earth. We’re just going to show whoever is doing this that you can’t beat us,” Gurnon said.
