Unfortunately I witnessed the events on Nov 5th first hand. It is a day that I will not soon forget.
I performed CPR on many people to include PFC Franceska from Chicago among others. I find myself questioning if there was more that I could of done to try to help the wounded. Some days the images come back to me and bring me so much sadness. I can't help but feel sadness for the famlies that lost someone that day. That day has really changed my outlook on life. Not a day goes by that I will take my son for granted. He is a little over 1 year old and I know that had I lost my son on that day I would nearly lose my mind.
I will continue to pray for the famalies that were impacted on that day. I will pray for those that are still healing both physically and mentally. Take care and god bless,
