Jennifer’s inspirational story:
In this episode, Jennifer speaks about how she witnessed and experienced the Boston Marathon terrorist attack. On April 15, 2013, Jennifer Kauffman was standing approximately 15 feet from the finish line when the bombing happened at the 117th Boston Marathon. She was one of at least 264 people who were seriously injured.
In this interview, Jennifer describes all the details of those tragic moments during the terrorist attack. In an instant the Boston Marathon went from elation to horror. She reveals that she was conscious during the explosion and witnessed things that no human should ever have to experience. She described seeing blood everywhere.
She experienced emotional trauma and physical injuries including spinal injuries that imputed her ability to walk normally for six months and a brain injury that affected her ability to recall memories. Affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), she eventually was able to manage it all with determination, focus and gratitude.
