take off the blind fold.

The man in the cowboy hat in this photo's name is Carlos Arredondo. Carlos was at the Boston Marathon with his wife handing out American flags to runners. He lost a son to a sniper bullet in Iraq in 2004 and a second son to suicide a few years later - a depression triggered by the death of his brother. Carlos now spends a significant amount of his time on peace activism and working with vets coming home from war and was at the Marathon to hand out flags and inspire people.

Carlos does not having any medical training but when the blast went off, he ran towards the danger, jumped two fences and found the now-famous man in the wheelchair on the ground, both his legs blown off, and suffering from severe shock and critical wounds. He got him into a wheelchair and pinched the man's artery closed with two of his fingers (you can see him doing so in the photo). Because of Carlos, this man is alive today, having had surgery earlier today to remove both of his legs.

This man is a hero and deserves recognition. This man who lost so much still threw himself into the frenzy of panic and saved another guy's life. That's Trill.

Also, when his son died, he got so depressed he lit himself on fire to try to kill himself. Someone put him out before any major damage was done, and now he is very aware of how important life is.

Just some trivia :)

Rebel souls. Deserters we've been called,
Chose a gun and threw away the sun.
Now these towns, they all know our name.
Six gun sound is our claim to fame.
I can hear them say...
Bad Company, and I won't deny.
until the day I die. i'm a blood thirst trained weapon, that feel no more than the satisfaction when seeing my enemies dismember by my hand, not a tree huger, boy kissing, but hurt ass ****** , but it bothers me seeing innocent people pay for political figures to get what they want, i say find the truth; make them pay.

The man in the wheelchair is the important part of the picture. His name is Nicholas Vogt, a lieutenant in the 35th Infantry Division of the U.S. army. A little research will reveal that Lt. Vogt is a double amputee victim and has been legless for a while.

I would say troll harder but you're obviously too stupid to even troll. How about you rid the world of your bad genes? Hm?

He deserves every bit of glory he gets, but assuming all of his kids died (tragically too) does he really have anything to lose running after a man like that, if that makes sense?

notice, the Latin name, just saying; not all of the minorities are bad, don't let yourself get blindfolded by those that want the migratory bill that don't get threw; and thy willingly sacrificated so many people to made them became martyr of a atrocity that is not really what they deserved been used as a piece in a bigger chess game. open your eyes they in disguise.

I guess his sweater really does match with his life.

Tough Ruck, as DJ 4DM1N would say
