Those who participate in and support the Pat Tillman run (which has expanded to take place in other cities across the nation, including NY, where Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America will run for the cause) and the many who risked their lives to save others at the finishing line in Boston and hunted down those who set the bombs also reminds us of those who suffer because of their trauma from these events.
Another event that seems overshadowed by Boston is the plant explosion in West, TX, where many lost their lives, including those from the volunteer fire department who went in to save others. Again, an example of who we are as a nation - selfless and strong, courageous and loving.
Please say a prayer for them. Please help them in any way you can as you see people suffering from terrorism and trauma in America. And know that no matter what, we can and will overcome!
God Bless the USA!
