Survivors, first responders, and families commemorate 1st anniversary of Boston marathon bombing

Survivors, first responders and the families of victims gathered in Boston today to commemorate the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings.

About 2500 people gathered at the Hynes Convention Center.
That is near the marathon finish line where three people died and more then 260 others were injured.

During the ceremony Vice President Joe Biden said the victims and the survivors of the bombings embodied the American spirit the terrorists tried to break that day.

In Washington, President Obama observed the anniversary with a private moment of silence at the White House..
