Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Governor Deval L. Patrick, and One Fund Boston said today that they are calling upon Boston and all communities across Massachusetts to join together in a Moment of Silence Monday afternoon, exactly one week following the Boston Marathon bombings.
The minute of silence will take place at 2:50 p.m. to honor the victims of the attacks and their families. It will be followed by the ringing of bells throughout Boston and the Commonwealth. [embedgallery id=135450] [embedgallery id=135622]
