As investigators continue to hunt for the Marathon Bombing suspect, President Barack Obama and the First Lady will travel to Boston later today to honor the victims of the tragic incident, which killed three and injured more than 170 people three days ago.

According to the White House schedule, Obama is set to attend an interfaith ceremony at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross in the South End of town. He plans on dedicating remarks “to those who were gravely wounded or killed in Monday's bombing near the finish line of the Boston Marathon.”

Yesterday authorities found a possible breakthrough in narrowing down a suspect after video footage revealed a suspicious man dropping off a bag and then walking away from the area in which the second bomb exploded. The footage has not been made public. Despite reports that a suspect was taken into custody yesterday, no arrests have been made at this time, according to Reuters.

What are your thoughts on the tragic event?
