Boston Marathon Bombings: One Month Later

One of the makeshift memorials near Copley Square


It’s been exactly one month since two bombs exploded on Boylston Street as runners crossed the Boston Marathon finish line and bystanders ran for their lives.

People were frantic when the blasts went off seconds apart. Business was shutdown as FBI cordoned off the typically bustling Boylston Street area for 10 days. The heart of Boston became a blood spattered crime scene, and the nation focused its attention on the site of what the UK Mirror called the second worst act of terror on U.S. soil since 9/11.

Much information on the suspects – two ethnic Chechen brothers living in Cambridge who were radicalized to become demonstratively anti-Western culture – has come out in the past 30 days as the victims convalesced and the deceased were mourned.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, the elder of the brothers and the alleged mastermind of the bombings, was killed in an unprecedented gunfight in Watertown during the early-morning hours April 19. The town and much of the region was on state mandated lockdown until late that evening. read more

VIDEO: One Week Later, Crowd Returns to Boylston Street to Honor Boston Bombing Victims

A crowd gathers for a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. on Monday, April 22, 2013, exactly one week after the bombing of the Boston Marathon.

One week after thousands of people gathered on Boylston Street to cheer on runners as they crossed the finish line of the 117th annual Boston Marathon, several hundred people returned to the area to honor those who were killed and injured in the bombings that forever changed a Boston tradition.

At 2:50 p.m.—the time when, one week prior, the first explosion went off, followed 10 seconds later by a second—the city of Boston and communities throughout Massachusetts held a moment of silence.

With the Copley Square area still cordoned off as a crime scene, hundreds of visitors gathered behind fencing at the corner of Boylston and Berkeley streets where a makeshift memorial sprouted up in the week following the event.

The memorial, which features thousands of tributes such as flags, T-shirts, running shoes, posters, cards, teddy bears and flowers, has been moved off the street to the sidewalk outside the Bank of America building, presumably in anticipation of Boylston Street being reopened to the public—though a date for that opening has not yet been announced. read more
