Sara has been working and writing online for so many years, she's unsure if she is still in corporeal form. She considers herself a jack of all trades, but would prefer it if you would stop calling her "Jack."

Jeff Bauman is probably the most recognized victim of the Boston Marathon bombing, notably because of the gruesome photo of him being wheeled away with his legs blown off. In the days after, he has made remarkable strides both physically and mentally. He has been an incredible inspiration.

And now he achieved perhaps his most remarkable feat yet - he has taken his first steps with the help of prosthetic legs, countless doctors, and unbelievable perseverance.
