       MOMENT OF SILENCE IN MEMORY OF THE BOSTON MARATHON VICTIMS

  (Mr. CAPUANO asked and was given permission to address the House for 
1 minute.)
  Mr. CAPUANO. Mr. Speaker, 2 years ago today, one of the most cowardly 
acts in American history was perpetrated on the people of Boston, of 
Massachusetts, of America, and, in fact, of the world when two lowly 
cowards blew up two bombs in the middle of the Boston Marathon, which 
is a celebration of American patriotism and of the birth of this 
country, killing three innocent people and, later on in the day, 
shooting a police officer in, again, another cowardly act, and injuring 
over 275 people.

  I just want to take a moment of the House's time to remember the 
people who died that day, the people who were injured that day, and to 
think for a moment as to what a wonderful country we have the good 
fortune to live in.
  God bless the United States of America.
  With that, Mr. Speaker, I would ask everyone to rise to share a 
moment of silence with me.
