I just read an amazing article and I really think it needs to be shared to as many people as possible. The writer is my cousin, Nathan.
Six years ago, while serving in Afghanistan, he was shot in an ambush. Three people were killed that day. Nathan was one of three wounded survivors.
We don't often think of the hell, the psychological trauma, that the survivors of these shootings face.
Yes, they are blessed and lucky to be alive, but their pain is much more than just physical.
The horror of the continued mass shootings in this country put more and more people in Nathan's situation.
I believe his article could be very helpful to them.
What I Wish Someone Had Told Me After I Got Shot
Tragedy struck our country again this month. Mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas, claimed the lives of more than 30 people. While much attention will, and should, be placed on those who died, I write to address another group who may go overlooked in the coming weeks: the people wounded by these terrible events.
I want to tell you what I wish I had known after I was shot.
