We have a semi-annual community newsletter and I had the pleasure of interviewing my 84 year old neighbor. In 1983 she was working for the US government in the foreign service when the embassy in Beirut was hit by a massive truck bomb. 67 people were killed, miraculously, she survived. It took three years of surgeries and PT to help her overcome a traumatic brain injury and 16 broken bones, I'm sure her optimism and sheer determination was elemental to the recovery. It's not just the military we should thank for their service.

A nice portrait and great back story. It must have been very traumatic at the time, and I'm glad to see she was able to live a full life.

She is a symbol of the dedication to public/government service that many Americans have. Wonderful composition Aboud!
Thank her for her service for me!

Very Nice picture her eyes show perseverance. My father was in that bombing and a second one couple years later. He also survived them both.

There are not nearly enough posts like this. The photo alone is really beautiful. The story is amazing. Great work for many reasons.

Brilliant portrait of a great lady. One of my photog friends was in Beirut shooting for US News & World Report and had the cover photo of the blown up embassy. Times haven't changed much since then, unfortunately.
Cheers,
Brent
