It was two years ago today that Boston became the target of domestic terrorism — as two bombs exploded near the Boston Marathon finish line.

Three people died. Hundreds were injured, and the world marveled at stories of generosity and heroism in this city.

To mark the second anniversary of the bombings, Mayor Marty Walsh has declared this "One Boston Day," a day for giving back through acts of kindness.

Mayor Walsh joins Morning Edition ahead of participating in a ceremonial flag-raising. We asked him what comes to his mind today when he thinks back to the confusion of that day.
