Double amputee Marine inspires Boston Marathon survivors

An unnamed Marine who lost both legs in combat visited two survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing recently, bringing an inspiring message of hope.

“There are so many opportunities that are going to come your way,” the double amputee told Celeste Corcoran and her 17-year-old daughter, Sydney, as they lay recovering together at Boston Medical Center.

“This isn’t the end, this is the beginning.”

Celeste had been standing with her daughter at the marathon finish line when one of two bombs exploded, severely wounding both of them. Her legs were amputated below the knee, and Sydney suffered near-fatal shrapnel wounds, according to the Huffington Post.
