Despite overcast skies, several dozen people donned their “Boston Strong” t-shirts Tuesday in Copley Square after the shirt designers dropped off a check for nearly $ 900,000 with the One Fund Boston.
Emerson College students Nicholas Reynolds and Chris Dobens came up with the idea for the shirts hours after the Boston Marathon bombings April 15. They couldn’t have imagined the outpouring of support they’ve seen over nearly two months.
On Tuesday, they wanted to gather as many people in their “Boston Strong” shirts as they could for a group photo.
“This has been absolutely amazing to see,” said Reynolds.

Boston has several reasons to be proud: Whether it’s because of the city’s resilience in the aftermath of the April Boston Marathon Bombings, the fact that its hometown hockey team will return to the Stanley Cup Finals, or the idea that it has one of the most passionate, involved communities around – no one can argue Boston is not a proud city.
There is no better proof of that last thought than at the annual Boston Pride Parade. The parade, in its 43rd year, marched through Copley Square, bent toward the South End and wound back uptown toward Government Center, beginning just after noon on Saturday.
Thousands lined the streets on a picture perfect day, not only to stand in solidarity with the LGBT community, but to reinforce “Boston Strong” at the very site from which that movement began.
Discussions to create a permanent Boston Marathon memorial have not yet taken place in City Hall.
While the memorial in Copley Square is still growing, the city’s archivist has been regularly making sure paper materials and other delicate items are protected.
In order to preserve the well-wishes and notes left for Boston, the city created a Tumblr page to document the memorial in Copley Square to effectively memoralize the memorial.
Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has made it clear that whatever memorial is made will respect the wishes of the victims and survivors of the bombings. When discussions about creating a permanent memorial begin survivors and victim families are going to be asked for feedback and thoughts, a city official told Patch.
So what would you like to see for a permanent Boston Marathon bombings memorial in Copley Square? Would you want to see statues?Would you like to see a monument erected? A glass-enclosed memorial of the items left at the temporary memorial? Tell us in the comments.
Crowds continued to gather at the makeshift memorial in Copley Square commemorating those impacted by the Boston Marathon bombings Wednesday, which marked one month since the attacks shook the city.
There was no special occasion, no moment silence as 2:50 p.m. came and went, which was the time on April 15 when two bombs exploded near the finish line, killing three and injurying 260 others.
Instead, those at the memorial shared their own moments of quiet reflection as the memorial continues to grow.
Ed Starbuck of Hyannis has been coming to the area nearly every day since shortly after the bombings. What started as a few flags he put down grew into the memorial which has been moved four times, most recently to its current locale.
“I would say it’s love and mourning,” Starbuck said of the continually-growing memorial. “People leave a little bit of grief here. And that’s why it’s important. It’s a place where people can come and after they look at Ground Zero, they can come here.”
The memorial at Copley Square continues to grow, with more candles, hats, stuffed animals signs and other well-wishes appearing by the day.
Have you left anything at the memorial? Does it encourage you to see the support from around the country? Tell us in the comments.
