At tribute, Marathon bombing victims, survivors honored

In a somber but also uplifting ceremony today on the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, the victims killed in the attacks were remembered, while the courage and compassion were praised of those who aided the survivors, both in the seconds right after the deadly explosions and the ensuing year.

“You have become the face of America’s resolve, not unlike what happened in 9/11 .... for the whole world to see,” said Vice President Joe Biden, praising the city’s resilience in the face of the bombings.
