Boston observed a moment of silence at 2:50 p.m. Monday – exactly one week after an annual springtime rite in the city was shattered by a pair of explosions that killed three people and injured more than 200, including some who lost legs.
From the Watertown police department whose officers searched their town for a bombing suspect to the Massachusetts State House to the neighborhood where a little boy who died in the attack had lived, the city remembered those it lost.
A full minute of silence was observed at the request of Gov. Deval Patrick, Mayor Thomas Menino, and charitable organization One Fund Boston. The White House announced that President Obama marked the occasion, as did the New York Stock Exchange. Governors in Maine, New Hampshire, and Connecticut asked residents of their states to take a minute to commemorate those killed and injured as well.
