Last night, I covered a community candlelight vigil for Martin Richard, an 8-year-old from Dorchester, Massachusetts who was one of three people killed in Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon. 

There’s not much to say here. It’s an incredibly tragic occurrence. This was a beautiful coming together of community, and I’m glad I was there to get these images.
