Brian Williams: "If there were silver linings to what happened today in Boston, two things: number one, it happened just in front of the medical tent, so there were many medical professionals standing by. They thought they were going to be treating cases of dehydration and exhaustion, instead they were doing triage of the wounded.

Number two, there are so many first-class hospitals in Boston, the kinds of hospitals that people travel from all over the country to seek treatment at, and today, unfortunately, they became triage centers as well."

Good thoughts and thanks to the medical pros of Mass Gen, Brigham and Women's and the other hospitals in Boston that are treating the victims of this terrible crime.
