Jane Richard, a 9-year-old girl who lost her left leg back in 2013 as a result of the Boston Marathon bombing, shared a very powerful message with the victims and survivors of the Paris terrorist attacks.
Her older brother Martin was killed two years ago in a blast from the Boston Marathon bombing. Jane has not only had to deal with losing her sibling but also a limb in addition to the injuries the rest of her family endured. Her father's eardrums were ruptured and her mother was hit in the face with debris and is now blind in one eye.
Despite the adversity that her family faces, Jane remains in high spirits and recently drew a colorful picture asking for peace following the tragedy that struck Paris, France on Nov. 13.
She wrote a message in French which translates to, “No more hurting people. Peace.”
Her brother had written the same words in English shortly before he died when the bomb planted near the marathon's finish line by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev detonated next to him.
Jane's optimism and inspiration brings hope to us all. She simply asks for what we all want and her brother did not live to see ... Peace.
