MBTA Conductor's Truly Touching Boston Marathon Tribute

When Tim Murphy, and MBTA conductor who NORMALLY drives Mattapan trains but on Sunday was driving the green line, realized he was between Hynes and Copley at 2:49, he knew he had to say something.

4 years before, at that very day, at that very time, both bombs went off at the finish line of the Boston Marathon right above where they were. He gave a touching speech and offered a moment of silence. Read the experience in his own words below-

"4 years ago, at this exact time, about 30 feet above this spot, the first of two devices went off and changed our city forever. Before entering Copley I would just like to observe a moment of silence to remember those who were lost and to think of those of us who continue to struggle on a daily basis from the effects of that day. On a more personal note for those running on Monday, from someone who was there in Copley Square when it happened, I can't even begin to tell you just how much it means to us that you continue to support our city. Thank you a thousand times over."
