Boston commemorated the ninth anniversary of the marathon bombings Friday.
Three people were killed and more than 260 were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line on April 15, 2013.
The city now honors the victims and survivors each year on One Boston Day. The tradition highlights public service, along with virtues like generosity and resilience.
"Commemorating One Boston Day is a reminder to each one of us to never take a day for granted," Mayor Michelle Wu said earlier this week, "and to find some time to perform an act of kindness — however big or small — in your community."
Wu joined Gov. Charlie Baker for a wreath-laying ceremony Friday afternoon at the two memorial sites on Boylston Street, followed by a moment of silence.
