Boston Mayor Thomas Menino praised his city
Thursday for its resilience in the wake of a terrorist attack that
killed three people and wounded 176.
"We are one Boston. No adversity, no challenge - nothing can tear down the resilience in the heart of the city and its people," he said at a memorial service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
He pointed to brave actions by emergency workers and ordinary citizens who helped the injured and the outpouring of love in the days since Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon.
"This was the compassion of the city at work," he said.
