An Inspiring Message from Wounded Veterans to Boston Marathon Survivors

As someone who’s from Boston and has been visiting this past month, I’m proud. I’m proud of the way the community has come together, offering their hearts, homes, and hospitality to others in need.

I’m proud of the way survivors are channeling gratitude for living through the tragedy, even while they begin the process of healing physically and emotionally.

And I’m proud of the many efforts people are taking around the country to help those directly affected as they adjust to their new realities and learn how to not just survive, but thrive.

“We stand with you.” That’s the message we’re sending as a collective, and it’s the heart of this inspiring video with words of wisdom from wounded veterans. Despite their injuries, they still live bold, passionate, engaged lives, and they want anyone who fears that might not be an option to know just how much is possible.

The video comes from Shoulder-to-Shoulder, a Virginia-based Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business. Visit The One Fund to help those affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.
