Red Sox fans gather at Boston Marathon finish line after World Series win

People in Boston were forced to deal with an unthinkable tragedy in the city, after the bombing at the finish line of the Boston Marathon earlier this year. The bombing brought the city closer together than ever before, while everyone was showing us what it meant to be Boston Strong.

The Boston Red Sox really stepped up to help do their part to heal the city following the bombings, so when they were able to clinch their first World Series at home for the first time since 1918, it meant a lot more than it generally.

After the win, Red Sox fans gathered at the Boston Marathon finish line to show that they have not forgotten what brought them all together.

It was a great moment and really showed us exactly how sports can help communities heal.
