Boston, Massachusetts Communities to Hold Moment of Silence Monday for Marathon Victims

Boston Marathon vigil attendees light candles at the conclusion of an interfaith service at Arlington Street Church on Tuesday, April 16, 2013.

 

The city of Boston and communities throughout Massachusetts are being asked to join in a moment of silence on Monday at 2:50 p.m.—the time the two bombs went off, within about 10 seconds of one another, near the finish line of the 117th annual Boston Marathon.

The minute of silence at 2:50 p.m. will honor the victims and families of those injured and killed by the terrorist attacks. Following the moment of silence, bells throughout Boston and the state will ring, according to a statement from Boston Mayor Tom Menino’s office.

“Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Governor Deval L. Patrick and One Fund Boston are calling upon Boston and all communities across the Commonwealth to join together in a Moment of Silence Monday afternoon, exactly one week following the Boston Marathon bombings,” the statement reads.

Individuals are encouraged to continue donating to the One Fund Boston, which will support the victims of the bombings. Visit onefundboston.org to learn more. read more
