Boston’s Memorial Day tribute: ‘We’ll keep running’

It was a different kind of Memorial Day weekend in Boston.

Trying to close some of the wounds still open from the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing, thousands of runners took part Saturday in the “One Run,” a symbolic tribute that had runners completing the final mile that was interrupted when bombs erupted at the finish line.

J. Alain Ferry, who organized the event, told New England Cable News, it was a chance to “to run that final mile, stolen from us.”

Boston doesn’t forget.

Anyone who’s ever been there knows that – and is reminded at almost every block that transformative events that occurred there more than two centuries ago made us the country we are today.

If there’s a Memorial Day 100 years from now, and if there’s a Boston to celebrate it, there will be a “One Run.”
