A Happy Story on the News

June 19, 2013

I saw this great story on the news yesterday and I have to share it. It was about the Wounded Warriors, maybe you’ve heard of them; they’re a group (I’m sorry, I don’t know their origins) that serves veterans and other military members who have suffered any type of injury or illness, mental or physical, as a result of their military service since 9/11. The group’s mission statement is simple: To Honor and Empower Wounded Warriors. Pretty great right there, huh? It is, but the story is better.

The Wounded Warriors held a softball camp for kids.

 That’s it. That’s the story. I can’t put the right words to it that will give you the feeling I had watching it so you just have to watch the story yourself and see the children and, most important, listen to the children.

Click here and you’ll open a link to the CBS news website where you can watch the video.

It’s sad, but living under the smog of war for the last 23 years (two Iraq wars and a number of years of no fly zone restrictions) we’ve become all to accustomed to seeing stories of wounded soldiers coming home missing limbs. So accustomed to the sight that it’s almost not a shock anymore. But we, or at least I don’t, stop to think that something like this, the loss of a limb, or limbs, could, for any reason, happen to children as well.

I hope you enjoy the story and find it as uplifting as I did.
