The local chapter International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) union -- Local 103 -- in Dorchester, Mass., put up a billboard in honor of the Boston bombing victims, but especially for 8-year-old Martin Richard who was from the town and is the youngest of the three killed in the blast.

"Cowards," the billboard along I-93 taunted.

"It was Local 103's way of shouting out our feelings of anger: Cowards," business manager Michael Monahan told ABC News.

"No other word or words came to my mind when I heard of the tragic event downtown Boston on Patriot's Day when a family from our neighborhood was effected so tragically," Monahan continued.

The billboard was later updated to include other phrases like "Pray for Boston" as well.
