As part of her senior project in college, CLE consultant, Stephanie helped construct a website including video, articles and links informing the public about PTSD. One of the components was a military personal story. Its featured video described an unfortunate story about Marine Combat Photographer Jordan Sherwood. Jordan was wounded in Iraq when an improvised explosive device detonated, leaving him with extensive wounds and months of recovery. His story was both heartbreaking and inspiring because he demonstrated a great ability to be take his injuries and turn them into a new, positive way to look at life. He is one of the few that survives incidents like this. Despite his injuries, Jordan looks at life in a positive light and as a way to overcome his hardships. Jordan shows that there is always a way to make things better for yourself even when faced with extremes and this is the message I wanted to convey to Lawline. That there is a light at the end of the tunnel, no matter how dark it may seem.
