It has been two years since the bombs went off near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, killing three spectators and injuring more than 260 others.
People across the city are marking the day with acts of service and a moment of silence and the ringing of church bells across the city at 2:49 p.m. to mark when the bombs went off. Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has dubbed Wednesday "One Boston Day," encouraging people to show kindness and generosity toward one another.
- "Church bells tolled across the city Wednesday afternoon, as many residents paused to mark the moment two years ago when two bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street, killing three and injuring more than 260."
