Readers of this blog (thanks Mom!) know of its snarky nature. Today, however, I need to take a break from the snark and focus on two remarkable people: one a survivor, the other recently deceased.
Yesterday’s NY Times featured an absolutely powerful piece on one of the survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing. No doubt you’ve seen the picture of Jeff Bauman being rushed to a medical tent in a wheelchair, his face a picture of shock, his legs blown off below his knees.
Bauman’s story of survival and recovery is one of those “there but for the grace of God go I” moments you’ll never forget.
Stop what you’re doing right now. Read it. Take in the photos.
Your pain today – whatever it may be – is real. Don’t let anyone suggest otherwise.
But it could be worse.
