Many people were affected by the 2013 Boston Marathon Bombing, one specif person was and still is reliving that dreadful experience everyday of his life. Jarrod Clowery was a runner during the Boston Marathon, although he hadn't lost a limb in the bombing he had 2nd degree burns all over his body and his legs pierced by pellets and nails. Jarrod would unwrap his legs and pick at the wounds because he didn't think it was real, Jarrod also suffers from PTSD and is afraid of loud noises, sharp objects and large crowds.

However many people were affected, many people weren't. Everyday people who are normal and hadn't experienced this still can be in large crowds and sleep without the lights on, and most importantly they can go through out the day without worring.

Sexual Abuse

Being sexually abused is a problem because it is harming someone sexually who has not agreed to the situation. A possible solution to this problem is to leave the place you were being harmed. This answer is good because even if it has stopped you never know if someone will hurt you again. Another solution for a survivor of being sexually abused is to go to counseling it helps you relax and not worry that someone is after you and it lets you say your feelings without being judged. Therefor the main difficulty of being a survivor of this type that you worry that everyone you meet will do this to you, you loose your trust in people because who ever has done this has made you loose your trust.


A survivor is a type of person who survives, especially a person remaining alive after an even in which others died or have been severely injured. for instance survivors come in many different styles some have characitics that are harder to see than others, for example they may be experiencing PTSD( post traumatic stress disorder). Although survivors experience deadly situations, others have not, others may be a survivor because there arm is broken and they have to wait and let it heal.
