Thankfully, the terror that the city of Boston went through over the past week is over.

The two main suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing have been either killed or arrested. Now, UMass is going to honor the city and those who lost their lives with some special jerseys the spring game.

UMass' official Twitter account posted the below photo, with the backs of jerseys including the names of people who died or the phrase "#BostonStrong."

"Here's a look at the jerseys 5 players will wear in today's UMass Football Spring Game to honor marathon victims," UMass wrote.

This is a very touching gesture. The spring game is scheduled for 4 p.m. on Saturday.
