Last Weekend my family and I attended an event hosted by the Wounded Warrior Project. This happened to be the same time as our son’s baseball game on MCRD, so timing was a little off for us, but we convinced our boy that he would have a much better time with family and friends. I can’t even explain how much fun we had, especially the kids. Before attending the event, my husband had sent me an email showing what was going to take place, as soon as I seen paddle boarding and canoeing I was convinced. I love attending all the Wounded Warrior Project events because it allows our children to gain a better understanding of those who have sacrificed their lives in order for us to enjoy ours…..there were numerous times I would hear comments from our kids saying, “look mom, that guy has no legs.” There was this one gentlemen that took me and my husband by surprise, we quickly notice that more than half his body was amputated. The beauty of it all was his candid expression and how he was more concerned with living in the moment. This man did all the sports that many of us were doing including paddle boarding. There were surf boards designed for those who had missing limbs….
