One year ago today, the city of Boston was forever altered after two bombs exploded at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Yesterday, The Boston Globe was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for their breaking news coverage of the bombing, and today they published an interactive feature profiling the survivors and first responders.
On Twitter, the hashtag #BostonStrong is trending today, in remembrance of those lost and those who survived. This morning, all five major Boston sports teams sent a #BostonStrong tweet at the same time.

A live tribute to the victims was held today, and a moment of silence will take place this afternoon, at 2:49 p.m. ET.
