It’s not often that I’m moved to tears. There are not many people I consider heroes. And, regrettably, it’s not often enough that I feel overwhelming gratitude.

But today, not even yet 9am in Hawaii, I’ve already experienced all three. And when you watch this video, I’m confident you’ll feel the same way.

Memorial Day in the USA… Yes, we’re having a barbecue today. But no, that’s not what I’m thankful for.

Yes, we’re hanging with friends, laughing and having a good time. But no, that’s not what I’m thankful for.

Yes, I have a beautiful wife and a wonderful life, but no – today – that’s not what I’m thankful for.

My heart, my tears, and my thanks go to the men & women, brothers & sisters, mothers & fathers that protect the blanket if freedom under which we’re enjoying today, and every day, here in the greatest country on earth.

Remembering is not enough. Who do you have to remember to thank today?
