Providing Comfort Where I Can

Kristen Jones

Kristen is a prior Military Police Officer with the U.S Army currently residing in Northern Virginia. She grew up in the country, horseback riding and fixing things with her own two hands. After leaving the military, she strives to help out where she can.

I’m tired of saying “I’m sorry,” but what else can I say to a mother who not only lost almost everything in this flood and watched as it took over her home, but now busts her butt to do what she can for her two young girls?

What else can you say but “I’m sorry”? Even though I’m so sorry this happened to every single resident I’ve met the last few days in West Virginia, I’m tired of saying it because those words cannot cover the depth of my feelings. I hate saying it, but at least I’m here to take action and provide comfort where I can.
