Past tense, Sam. It's over and done with. You did what you had to. There's no need to feel guilt here and there's no way you're responsible for the aftermath. If you hadn't moved when you did there would have been so many dead, Sammy. So many.

Past tense, Dean. You can't change it now, can't go back in time. And even if you could, what would you do differently? Someone had to make a decision and this time it was you. You might hate that decision but without it there would have been so many dead, Dean. So many.
