14 Incredible Boston Bombing Survivors & What They’re Doing Almost Two Years Later
Marathon runners are known for their strength and resilience, and no athletes exemplify these traits more than the survivors of the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing that left a city devastated but defiant. More than a year after the deadly attacks, suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is finally facing a jury for his part in the terrorist plot. And although the nation will undoubtedly be reminded of the horror and violence that ransacked the streets of Boston that fateful Monday morning, we should also remember the incredible stories of survival after the Boston Bombing that emerged even from the debris of destruction.
While the lives of Krystle Campbell, 29, Lu Lingzi, 23, and Martin Richard, 8, were lost on April 15, 2013, more than 260 others (16 of whom lost limbs in the bombing) lived through the tragedy, and have continued to lead inspired and determined lives in remembrance of the three individuals who were unable to do so themselves. And for the following survivors, the term Boston Strong is more than a motto, it's a way of life.
