    The Boston Marathon's Touching Makeshift Memorial

    Three are dead and 176 are injured. Runners, local residents, and visitors pay their respects.

    This is the intersection of Boylston and Arlington streets in Boston. Two bombs detonated less than four blocks from here during the Boston Marathon on Monday.
