Subdued remembrance will mark 2 years since marathon bombing

Posted:

BOSTON (AP)- Boston is marking the second anniversary of the 2013 marathon bombings with a subdued remembrance.

Mayor Marty Walsh and other officials will raise commemorative banners Wednesday on Boylston Street.

A moment of silence will follow at 2:49 p.m., when the first of two bombs exploded near the finish line April 15, 2013. Church bells will then ring throughout the city.

Three people were killed and more than 260 others were wounded in the attacks.

Walsh has also declared April 15 "One Boston Day," a new tradition meant to spread goodwill. Bostonians are encouraged to share their acts of kindness using the hashtag OneBostonDay.

Last year, thousands gathered at the marathon finish line for the anniversary, and Vice President Joe Biden declared, "We are America. . We own the finish line."
