Everyone across the nation is mourning after what happened at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. Two bombs went off during the race, killing three people and injuring 264. The cause of these bombs were two russian brothers; Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The older brother Tamerlan was killed in a rain of gunfire from the Boston Police. Dzhokhar was injured with a gunshot wound after the fight with police. He escaped during the rain and went to Watertown. During the manhunt most citizens of Watertown were escorted to their homes and were told to stay inside because there was an escaped bomber. Dzhokhar was found hiding in a boat, in a backyard. He was arrested and taken to a hospital shortly afterwards. Dzhokhar says that this was an act of only himself and his brother not his country. He said that his brother was the mastermind behind this, and that they did this in spite of the Iraq war and the war in Afghanistan. We all will remember the end of the marathon.
