April 15 - One Boston Day

Posted on April 15, 2018

Today is the anniversary of a tragedy: 

On this date in 2013, three innocent people were killed while watching the Boston Marathon, and many more people were injured or maimed, by a double-bombing. This act of terror was meant to affect the entire community of Boston and perhaps the entire nation.

But Boston responded to the horrific event with strength.




And it is those things that One Boston Day celebrates, even as it continues to mourn the victims. Boston residents also take this day as a time to remember the support and encouragement they received from people all over the nation and world.

How is One Boston Day celebrated? A variety of organizations are planning events and projects - from a sneaker drive and neighborhood clean-up to a blood drive and "painting for peace."
