Boston Bombing Anniversary

Today, April 15th marks the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing. Between 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., a flag-raising ceremony and moment of silence will be held at the marathon finish line, to mark the time and place where two bombs exploded on April 15, 2013. After a stirring rendition of "God Bless America," ordinary people, bombing survivors, first responders and dignitaries -- including Vice President Joe Biden -- bowed their heads in a moment of silence, saw the American flag raised, and sang the national anthem. In the aftermath of the tragedy, it is the strength and resilience of the human spirit as well as the heroism that should be celebrated.
