In their first shows since Monday's bombings at the Boston Marathon, both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert had a few things to say about the tragic event.

Few — but powerful.

Echoing the words of many others who have witnessed the outpouring of pure goodness in the aftermath of the attacks, Stewart expressed his gratitude to the Cradle of Liberty for "inspiring and solidifying my belief in humanity and the people of this country."

Echoing Stewart's sentiments, Colbert had similar, albeit spicier things to say to the individual or individuals behind the attacks.

"Whoever did this obviously did not know shit about the people of Boston, because nothing these terrorists do is going to shake them," Colbert said before adding, "for Pete's sake, Boston was founded by the Pilgrims!"
