He might as well have moved a mountain as cleared a marathon finish line. Boston bartender Chris Laudani became an instant symbol of the city's resilience for shoveling snow off the yellow and blue Boston Marathon finish line on Boylston Street, where the 2013 terrorist bombing killed three people and wounded more than 260.

After a photo of Laudani shoveling the snow made the rounds on the Internet, the hashtag #BostonStrong was trending on Twitter.
