Listen: Boston, Duval Patrick And Massachusetts discussed on Overnight re-air of day's programming
"The finish line during the Boston marathon, the attack killed three injured over two hundred fifty and shut down the city of Boston for a couple of days during a fierce man hunt for those responsible in the aftermath the city banded together.

Speaking at a memorial service one year later because as I see Boston strong is about the triumph of community itself. Over and over again these last several years, we have emphasized the importance of building community of seeing our stake in our neighbors dreams and struggles as well as our own. Sustaining such sentiments is tough in the face of the crushing cynicism. So prevalent in modern culture, and yet for me the thing we witnessed in the aftermath of that vicious attack last year. And then I admit we are here today to celebrate is precisely that sense of community that enduring and transcendent display you and so many others showed last year of kindness and grace. There are no strangers here. In the days and weeks after the marathon last year, we were reminded how few degrees of separation. There are in fact between us. I think of the young lawyer on my own staff who finished the root on boylston street equidistant between the first and the second blast or the friends who left the finish line minutes before the first explosion because they're small children needed a nap or the friends who didn't there are no strangers here. Massachusetts Governor Duval Patrick speaking at a memorial event in twenty fourteen one year after the Boston marathon bombing on this day in twenty thirteen C Span's Washington journal is live again tomorrow morning at seven eastern. Here's a look ahead."
