Three years ago, at 2:49 p.m., the first of two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Friday morning, families of the three people killed in the blasts — Krystle Campbell, Martin Richard and Lingzi Lu — placed wreaths near the finish line on Boylston Street.

They are among those marking the day with acts of service as part of "One Boston Day."
