Remembering the Boston Marathon Bombing a Year Later

See also

Nearly one year ago, the city of Boston experienced a tragic event which ended up touching the entire nation.

On April 15, 2013, a pressure cooker bomb exploded during the famed marathon. Three people were killed when the bomb exploded, and hundreds were injured.

Soon after the events of the bombing, a massive manhunt was launched for the suspects, who had been caught in video footage planting the bomb. The two suspects were brothers, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who were originally from Kalmyk Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic, a part of the former Soviet Union.

The two brothers were also believed to be responsible for the murder of an MIT police officer.

While Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed in a gun fight with police, his brother was later captured and is currently awaiting trial. It was recently announced that the death penalty will be sought by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Due to the events of last year, security at this year's marathon, which will take place on the 21st, is expected to be especially tight.

While it is difficult to forget the tragic events of last year, is more important to reflect on remembering and honoring the victims of this tragic event. Justice will eventually come for those responsible for the tragedy.
