Web Catch: One Boston Day marked by kindness, caring

It was an emotional scene at Fenway Park on Wednesday. The day marked the two-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, and you'd be hard pressed to find a dry eye in the house as survivors Jeff Bauman and Patrick Downes threw out the first pitches at the afternoon's Red Sox game.

Boston has given April 15 a fresh start of sorts, on the date now known as One Boston Day. Mayor Marty Walsh is encouraging Bostonians to use the day to spread care and kindness, giving back in the spirit of resilience and altruism.

At 2:49 p.m., the whir of the city came to a halt for a moment of silence. Boston paused to remember the lives that were lost – and those forever changed – on Boylston Street on April 15, 2013.
