Have you ever walked through an airport and seen a soldier? Have you ever felt awkward about reaching out to them and saying THANK-YOU?
As we enter this long Memorial Day Holiday, designed to honor the men and women who have laid down their lives for this great country of ours, please watch this short video.
It is called "Operation Gratitude."
It is about acknowledging the sacrifices our troops make, serving in the broiling, dusty, dirty deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, and other places around the globe, suffering excrutiating loneliness because they are separated from their families.
It is that small moment where we set aside our activism, we don't spend a dime, write any of the political establishment, call talk-radio, blog or do anything other than putting your hand over your heart.
It is about a miniscule thing that we can do to express our thanks to our military.
"Thank-you" are two words not spoken nearly enough to men and women wearing the cammo uniforms who are proudly serving America.
Believe me, I know.
