Duty: Watch Video of Two Uniformed Soldiers Moments After Blasts

These two heroes should give you some pride and comfort among the horror. (Warning: Graphic)

Immediately after the blast, the heroes coming towards the danger, determined to help, struggled to get past the safety barricade lining the street to reach the victims. Then, at 1:43 of this video, two uniformed soldiers sprint into the shot.

If you know our soldiers, you know these two already decided that the barricades were going to come down before they got there. And they do take them down, and help streams in.

I’ll be thinking about these two heroes for a long time. If your kids are old enough to watch, this might strike you as a valuable opportunity¬†for teaching character.

I noticed that on the video yesterday as well. To be honest, seeing those two on the ground and taking immediate action on their own was the only thing I found reassuring about the whole day.
