President Barack Obama attended an interfaith service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston on Thursday and delivered an inspirational speech to residents still healing from Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing.
“I’m here today on behalf of the American people with a simple message: Every one of us has been touched by this attack on your beloved city. Every one of us stands with you,” Obama said. “Boston may be your hometown, but we claim it, too. Boston, you’re my home. For millions of us, what happened on Monday is personal.”
