Ceremony To Mark Boston Marathon Bombing Anniversary

A ceremony is being held in Boston Tuesday to mark the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. 

Vice President Joe Biden will attend the invitation-only event at the Hynes  Convention Center just yards from the marathon finish line where the two bombs killed 3 people and injured more than 260. The ceremony will honor victims, survivors and first responders.   Ed Davis, who was Boston Police Commissioner a year-ago said the event will also celebrate Boston’s resiliency.

" The terrorists could not have picked a worst place  to try to accomplish their goals. They completely failed and they failed because of the strength of the people of the city."

Governor Deval Patrick has ordered flags in the state flown at half-staff  on Tuesday..
