BOSTON (CBS) — The rain couldn’t stop the hundreds of people who took part in the annual Mother’s Day Walk for Peace.
They rallied with umbrellas in hand, marching nearly seven miles from Town Field in Dorchester to City Hall. The walk supports families of murdered children and calls for the creation of more peaceful communities.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh walked in the event, and so did Gov. Charlie Baker and his wife Lauren.
“We have three kids, we love ’em to death, and we couldn’t imagine what life would be like if we lost one,” Gov. Baker said. “For those who are here who lost somebody, or are here supporting someone who lost somebody, God bless you and thank you for being here today.”
