There's tons of hospitals and emergency centers in the area, actually. Not that you'd ever want to, but if you have to get seriously injured, Boston's a good place to do it. My mum works at a hospital maybe 30 minutes from Boston and said they got a pretty light load of patients since a lot of the victims were evenly distributed to nearby centers. The doctors and EMTs in Boston are some of the best in the world.

In any case, one of the casualties is actually from my hometown in Medford. I didn't know her as well as some of my friends did, but I heard the mother was originally told the daughter was fine, then told she was one of the casualties. Really tragic, but there's been a huge outpouring of support.

I was actually going to try and get over my fear of needles to give blood today, but I was turned down due to them already having more than enough donations, which is kinda crazy (but in a good way).
