16. We are all seeking some bit of silver lining...and this is good news. Sure, there will be

more operations, months of rehab, and many dark days ahead for these survivors. But there is hope for these people to put a semblance of their lives back together.

Our hearts go out to friends and families of those that did not survive: Krystle Campbell, who funeral was today in nearby Medford, Martin Richard, Lu Lingzi, and Officer Sean Collier. Officer Richard Donohue who nearly died is likely to make a recovery.

I have said this before, but it bears repeating: the 'primary responders' where friends and strangers standing nearby or leaping in quickly to help stop bleeding, etc. before even the nearby EMTs and police got to the scene. This is almaost always the case. Average citizens rise to the occasion to help do the right things. Of course it helps if you have some skills. I think it behooves all of us that don't already have some, to think about getting some basic emergency training. I know I will be.
