Cameron Bure Breaks Down
Cameron Bure, 45, took to her Instagram Story to show her fans just how devastated she was over this terrorist attack. Her story isn’t available to share here, but here’s what she said.
“Hi, I keep debating if I should post anything, but I just wanted to because I’m always so happy on Instagram,” she explained with tears in her eyes, according to US Weekly. “I just wanted to show you my own humanity of how heavy my heart is.”
“I just keep looking at all the faces of those military servicemen that have died and the people of Afghanistan and all the Americans, and it’s so hard to look at,” she continued.

Thirteen American service members were killed and at least 18 more were injured last Thursday in a suicide bombing near Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport. At least 90 Afghans were killed in the attack as well.
‘I Am Just Mourning’
“As an American and as a mama, I am just mourning the loss of all those people and my heart just breaks,” Cameron Bure added.
Cameron Bure, who is a proud Christian, later returned to her Instagram Story after drying most of her tears.
“I collected myself, but I’m packing for a trip today. I’m leaving and I’m leaving my family for a while,” she said. “All my emotions just hit me today, and all I can think about is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with you.”
The “Fuller House” alum then said that in difficult moments like these, her faith is what keeps her strong.
‘Jesus Brings Us Good News’
“Jesus brings us good news,” Cameron Bure said. “It’s salvation for every one of us. There might be some of you thinking, ‘Your religion is for you. Keep it to yourself.’”
“If I didn’t share that good news with you, I would be the biggest hypocrite of a Christian because God tells us to go share the good news with everyone,” she concluded, reciting the Bible verse John 3:16-17 as she signed off.
The silence from much of the liberal world of Hollywood about this terrorist attack has been deafening. It’s heartwarming to see at least one star paying these fallen American heroes the respect that they deserve.
Here’s a brief news clip about the attack.
Thanks to the left, members of the military aren’t getting the respect that they deserve these days despite making the ultimate sacrifice for the rest of our freedoms.
Please join us in saying a prayer for the families of the 13 service members who were killed serving our country last week.
