Mother’s Day Walk carries message of peace

Thousands march in Dorchester

Thousands of Bostonians called for peace early Sunday, following several recent shootings and stabbings and an unprecedented attack on the city last month.

Those killed in the April 15 Boston Marathon bombings were remembered alongside men, women, and children lost to street violence as marchers wearing purple — a color they said represents peace — advanced down Dorchester Avenue in the 17th annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace.
