This time last year, our city was changed forever. The Boston Marathon bombing took four lives and injured many more. The city was shaken, and many didn’t know what the future would hold for the Boston Marathon.
But here we are, one year later, and stronger than ever.

On April 15, 2014, we celebrated those lost and injured in the bombing. Mayor Menino, Mayor Walsh, Governor Patrick, Vice President Joe Biden, friends and families of the victims, and the city of Boston all gathered at the finish line of the marathon to pay their respects, and to let the world know that this will not hold us back.

“You are living proof that America can never, never be deafeated,” said Vice President Joe Biden during his remarks at the tribute.
