Updated 2 years ago

While the investigation continues into the bombings at the Boston Marathon, people made big strides on Thursday in the healing process.In Boston, an interfaith service was held to remember those who were killed, and to lift up the wounded. Through song, through prayer, and through reflection, people from the Boston community and beyond gathered Thursday to remember the three who died in Monday’s attack and those still battling to survive, vowing to stand strong in the midst of so much grief.”We are one Boston. No adversity, no challenge, nothing can tear down the resilience and heart of this of this city and its people.”The president and first lady brought condolences from the entire country.”We also come together today to reclaim that state of grace, to reaffirm the spirit of this city is undaunted and the sprit of this country shall remain undimmed .”Many in the crowd were the first responders who rushed to the scene in the moments following Monday’s attack.Not far from the cathedral, the site of the explosions is still a crime scene. There is increasing pressure on the investigation. Who is responsible? And why did they do it?A law enforcement official says investigators have passed around images of two men who showed up at the finish line moments before the blast the FBI would like to speak with. “I would not characterize as ‘suspects,’ under the technical term, but we need the public’s help in locating these individuals.”
