Lt. Mike Murphy of the Newton, Mass., fire dept. carries an American flag down Boylston Street after observing a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the bombing at the Boston Marathon. At 2:50 p.m. Monday, exactly one week after the bombings, many gathered at a makeshift memorial on Boylston Street, where bouquets of flowers, handwritten messages and used running shoes have been piled on the sidewalk.
