A Look Back: Marathon Week

Posted: Updated:

The entire nation felt the pain from Boston and Texas this week, as images of unspeakable horrors made their way into our homes.

In Boston, the horror was perpetrated intentionally, an act of evil.

In West, Texas, the horror was accidental and surreal.

It's a newsroom's job to bring our viewers the latest and to do our best to put events in context, no matter how difficult or painful that can sometimes be.

Our investigative producer Heidi Cuda put together this video tribute in an attempt to pay respect to both the living and the dead.

In the words of President Obama, quoting a little boy's sign: "No more hurting people. Peace."
