BOSTON, MA - One year ago today, bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The tragedy will be marked by a special tribute today.

Three people were killed and hundreds more injured when bombs planted by terrorists exploded. Those victims will be honored, along with the first responders, doctors and nurses who helped them.

Vice President Joe Biden, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and former Boston Mayor Tom Menino are among those who will speak. Some survivors of the bombing are also expected to participate.

Two brothers are accused of planning and orchestrating the attack. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died during a shootout with police, while his younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is awaiting trial.

The 2014 Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, April 21st.
