BOSTON (AP) - The second anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing will be marked today with a moment of silence, the tolling of church bells and a call for kindness.

The moment of silence comes at 2:49 p.m. Eastern Time, when the first of two bombs exploded near the finish line of the race on April 15.

Three people were killed and another 260 were wounded. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv), was convicted last week of carrying out the bombing with his older brother, who was killed during the manhunt.
