Recent statistic: There are more than 1 million Americans caring for injured Veterans
There is no measure or scale that can compute the value or worth of the care that one healthy human being gives to one who is sick or injured. But when the ill or injured is a wounded warrior, the care becomes something priceless. It begins to represent the act of sacrifice that caused those wounds in the first place. It’s a harsh circle that describes this kindness. That wounded warrior is wounded because they served in harms way. The caregiver then puts themselves at risk and sacrifices to help the warrior. It is a quiet, humbling thing. It’s a beautiful and tragic thing but it is the best in people manifest in kindness.
