President Barack Obama is lauding the courage and leadership of Bostonians on the first anniversary of the marathon bombing that killed three people.
Obama is observing Tuesday's anniversary with a private moment of silence at the White House. He says in a statement that those who were injured have been an inspiration in their recovery.
Obama says this year's race, scheduled for Monday, will "show the world the meaning of Boston Strong as a city chooses to run again."
The president plans to have a moment of silence with aides in the Oval Office at 2:49 p.m., Eastern time, the moment two bombs exploded near the finish line of the marathon last April 15.
Vice President Joe Biden will speak at a memorial service in Boston.
