[ANON POST] Jewish blessings

I have a modern-day American Reform rabbi who's saying goodbye to some people she cares about (both Jewish and not) who're going off to fight with the forces of the Big Bad. Is there some sort of goodbye/do good things/try not to get killed blessing she would say to them? I've been looking at Hebrew blessings and farewells, but I haven't been able to find anything appropriate.

Knee injury

You guys were awesome helping me out last time so i hope you can help me here.

I'm trying to have a character have a pretty bad knee injury, but I have no idea what's realistic.

My character (Male in his mid to late 30's). Long story short I have him on the ground while a much larger/heavier/stronger guy stomps (once or twice) on my guys knee.

Now I want this to be a pretty serious injury. like the guy might need a couple surgeries, not being able to walk for a bit, physio and maybe even needing a cane for the rest of his life, even if he doesn't need the cane, his mobility should not be the same.

I have no idea what type of injury could cause this (I know knees are wonky) but I need to know if my situation is realistic (the stomping is important) And what kind of damage would need to be done.

I don't mind doing the research on the prognosis, but I need to know what type of injury this could be (broken kneecap? I know there are a lot of tendons in the knee)

Much help would be appreciated!
