The serenity and celebration of the 2013 Boston Marathon was shattered by a vicious attack on innocent bystanders enjoying one of the most famous sporting events in the world.
In the face of overwhelming sadness and devastation, the Boston community instantly stepped up in the most trying of times and showed the true heart and determination of the city and of this great nation.
Through the anguish came images of heroes risking their lives to run toward the blast locations and help the fallen victims. These courageous men and women helped save and tend to many wounded spectators on this tragic day.
We continue to share our thoughts and prayers with the people of Boston in their time of need.
