JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. -- David Green isn't in Boston this year. In 2013, he was running in the Boston Marathon, as the explosions went off. Even though it's been a year, the event is still in the front of his mind.

"Absolutely, like it was two minutes ago," he said.

Green took a picture and a video when the explosions went off and that picture helped the FBI identify of the suspects.

"I played a part, I don't know how big or small," he said. "Having a piece of the puzzle solved with his apprehension is satisfying."

Green says the event impacted him in a big way and the next step in his healing process is to go to Boston.

"I'm ready to go confront the demons and turn it into something positive," Green said. "I want to know it's not that way anymore, it's something different, and something better."
