Boston Marathon Survivors Return to Finish Line to Show Their Strength

It has been a year since the Boston Marathon bombing that took 3 lives and wounded hundreds more. But the citizens of the city and those who were there that fateful day are stronger than ever and determined to show that to the world. Enter photographer Robert X. Fogarty. His Dear World project features Boston Marathon survivors returning to the finish line to bare their messages of perseverance. Each runner has written a heartfelt message of their strength or in remembrance of a loved one to show the world that they will fight through this adversity, and no one will keep them down. Understandably, many declined the opportunity to participate in the project, but whether they appear in the photo series or not, all of the survivors have proven themselves to be Boston Strong.
