BOSTON (AP) - There's a heavy police presence around Boston's main Roman Catholic cathedral as residents lined up to mourn the victims of the marathon bombing at an interfaith service that will be attended by President Barack Obama.
Streets are blocked off around the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in Boston's South End, and people have been lined up since before dawn hoping to get one of the roughly 2,000 seats inside. By 9 a.m., they were being turned away.
Someone was holding a green flag bearing the words "forgiveness" and "peace."
Among the hundreds in line was 18-year-old Eli Philips. The college student was a Marathon volunteer and was wearing his volunteer jacket on Thursday morning.
He says he's still shocked that "something that was euphoric went so bad."
