Students at Roosevelt Elementary in Boise run a silent mile in honor of victims of the Boston Marathon bombing Friday April 19, 2013. Fifth and sixth grade teacher Stephanie Williams said her students came up with idea on their own after watching events from the bombing during a current events session. "One student asked if they could run a mile in silence to think about the victims," Williams said. "Every student raised their hands to volunteer—I though that was really neat coming from 12-year-olds."
