Be Inspired by this Boston Bombing Survivor

April 21, 2013

Adrianne Haslet-Davis and her husband, Adam Davis, still smiling after last week’s tragedy.

After the horrific tragedy of last week’s Boston Marathon bombing, it’s nice to see stories of hope and resilience (and heroics!) popping up around the web. But things really hit home when I came across Adrianne Haslet-Davis’s story.

Before last Monday’s marathon, Adrianne was a ballroom instructor at Arthur Murray Dance Studio in Boston’s Park Plaza. But after surviving the second bomb blast, she woke up in the hospital to learn she no longer had her left foot—an absolutely devastating discovery for anyone.

Her response?

“I can’t let some [one] come along and steal my whole life. So, I’ll dance again. And next year, though I’ve never been a runner, yes, I plan to run the marathon.”

Inspiring to say the least. We can’t wait to see Adrianne back on the dance floor and running next year’s marathon! Until then, we’ll be sending lots of prayers and well wishes her way.
