After strangers tried to kill us with a homemade bomb in the Afghanistan desert, my sister said, “You were in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
Ever the journalist, I tried to explain that we go where the story is and/or where our editors send us.
After I recovered, I promised everyone who would listen that I would do my best to help wounded warriors, because the U.S. Special Forces rescued me and Hadi.
Giving back. Paying it forward.
Now that I’m working full-time with wounded warriors, I know I’m in the right place at the right time.
My gratitude is truly endless.
