A Positive Story from the Boston Marathon

Two years ago in Afghanistan, Army Capt. Jake E. Murphy lost both of his legs in combat. On Monday, he completed the Boston Marathon in 1:40 by hand-cycling. As a result, he was safely out of the area where the devastating events occurred. It has been reported that many individuals involved in the tragic events in Boston have lost limbs. Hopefully, Capt. Murphy, a double amputee himself, will be a source of inspiration to those who lost limbs on Monday and maybe they will join Capt. Murphy in recovering and completing the Boston Marathon.
