When my then almost-three-year-old piped up out of the blue the reason behind our holiday weekend (Memorial Day), I thought it was so cute I had to grab my video camera. We share it again every year on both Veteran’s Day and Memorial Day, and I think the voice of an innocent child is the most sincere way to thank those men and women who so selflessly give their time, and often their lives, to protect our freedoms. As adults, we can be cynical and make thing so complicated (even in trying to get him to say more, I made this video more complicated than it needed to be!), but children don’t get bogged down by that. So I use this video to remind myself that it’s really just as simple as saying:
Thank You to our Heroes!
