THE STORY:

When someone endures a tragic life event and moves through the experience with grace, patience, and an eye for healing and helping -- the affect is deeply inspiring.  When we learn of these stories there is always a quick moment of self-reflection, thinking "would I have this composure, this ability to give, if the tables were turned," follwed by an acute sense of pride and inspiration.  I feel this way about James Regan's family and fiance, and their response to their tragedy endured in 2007.

Spouses and family members of our military service members experience life-altering events much more frequently then the rest of us, because their families regularly make sacrifices that the rest of us are not asked to make.  Mary McHugh lost her fiance, Army Ranger James Regan, in 2007 to an IED in northern Iraq.  I've met Mary through mutual friends and am quite sure I will not meet another woman like her.

This November 6th, Tara Seracka and I will be running the New York Marathon to benefit the Lead the Way Fund.  The courageous sacrifices that our military heros make sometimes feel far away from our generally safe daily lives.  I'm proud to run this race in support of Lead the Way, and look forward to directing even a small amount of attention towards this very imporant cause.
