#One Boston Day
Boston will hold a moment of silence at 2:49 p.m. on April 15 to mark the two-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings. Church bells will then ring throughout the city.
Mayor Marty Walsh Walsh announced in a press release on Thursday that he is encouraging people outside of the city, and around the world, to join Boston as we hold this moment of silence.
Mayor Walsh previously announced that April 15 will forever be known as “One Boston Day.” This new tradition will honor the resiliency, generosity and strength of the City of Boston. “The day will be an opportunity to recognize the good in our community and reflect on the spirit of grace and resilience of the people of Boston that was exemplified in the response to the loss and the tragedies of April 15, 2013.”
One of the goals of “One Boston Day” is to encourage random acts of kindness and spreading goodwill. How will you be honoring #OneBostonDay?
The City of Boston also launched a new website www.onebostonday.org, dedicated to sharing how Boston and people around the world are marking April 15. Check it out!
