BOSTON (CBS) – One of the most recognizable survivors of the Boston Marathon bombing is reaching out to victims of the Las Vegas shooting with a message of hope.
Bauman took to Facebook Monday night to share his thoughts about the mass shooting that killed at least 59 people and left more than 500 wounded.
He expressed his condolences for those who lost their lives and their families, but also had an important message for the survivors.
“To the victims waking up in a hospital right now wondering how life will ever be the same… I know your pain. The most important advice I can give is to remember that healing your mind is just as important as healing your physical, visible injuries,” Bauman wrote. “It took me too many years and dark moments to realize that and it is so, so important. You will walk again. You will laugh again. You will dance again. You will live again.”
Bauman also urged his followers to donate to the Las Vegas Victims fund, which has raised more than $3 million so far.
