The things they carried — and buried

If you were to put something in a time capsule to be opened 20 years from now, what would it be? It’s a harder question than it might seem. For me, maybe a letter to my kids, or some stories about the Boston Marathon bombings, or the Red Sox winning the 2013 World Series (Hey, the season is still young).

Freshmen at Quincy High School came up with some great ideas, and last week put them in a time capsule and buried it 6 feet deep in the school’s courtyard. The teens will open it at their 20th high school reunion, in 2036.
