I met my he's-more-like-my-brother friend in town earlier today.
We went to Somerset House to see the photography exhibition Wounded: The Legacy of War.
And in a six-degrees-of-separation kind of way,
one of the wounded he photographed
is the husband of my cousin's best friend.
Personal biogs accompany each photo.
There's no denying that these guys (and girls) show courage
and resolve in living with their life-changing injuries.
The kind of courage and resolve that saw many of them
compete in the inaugural Invictus Games last September.
They are the captains of their souls.
They are Invictus.
The exhibition is on at Somerset House, London until 25 January.
Entrance is free.
See it if you can.
