“Conquering the Impossible”

Just like a lot of Americans of a mature enough age, I can remember exactly what I was doing on 9/11. Fast forward and it seems like it was a day that wasn’t very long ago, but I’m shocked at how long ago it actually was. We just watched 60 minutes on tv and there was an awesome part about wounded warriors hiking the world’s most awesome peaks to regain their confidence and more importantly likely their will to live. One of my best friends is a VA social worker and an advocate for veterans. She knows very much what it is like for these guys as she is also the daughter of a wounded Vietnam veteran. My own dad also served in the Navy, but he is slightly older than the Vietnam crowd and had already been discharged during “Nam.”  This is an inspiring 13+ minutes of a 60 minutes episode of how one inspired wounded guy is helping our wounded soldiers in an epic way. Hint: There is hiking!  http://www.cbsnews.com/news/the-heroes-project-60-minutes-lara-logan/ If you have time to watch this, it will definitely be inspirational.
