The Gratitude Campaign

We seem to have hand gestures for just about every emotion.

Don't hold back using this one.

Lori, this post is for your son, Brian Jolley.

Oh dear...there you go making me cry again. The gratitude campaign, now there's a campaign I can fully support!

Terri said...

way cool...yeah, I got a little teary eyed here at work. I hope I get the opportunity to test this campaign out! Thanks Nancy and Brian and Lori.

Thanks for making more people aware of this beautiful gesture.

Of course you know you are also responsible for a lot of teary eyes after reading this.

What a great idea! I've never quite known what to do or say when I see our troops out and about, but now I do. I also like the 'red shirt Friday' theme and will certainly participate. God bless 'em all! Excuse me, I have to go blow my nose now....*sniff*

On flights back and forth to Dallas last week there were multiple servicemen - the flight down had about 15 young people headed for basic training, the flight back a handful going here and there. Many people thanked, hugged and gave encouragement. It was heart-warming. I wish I had known the gesture then - I just said thank you - which didn't seem like enough. The recruits were nervous, excited and committed to making the most of their service career - most discussing the sign-on bonus and plans for using it for college...

Hey I sent this to you! So glad you posted it to your Blog. It brought tears to my eyes as well. Hope I get to use it when I'm at the airport nest month.

Indeed!

Regardless on your thoughts of war being right or wrong. From human to human, soul to soul, this campaign (and post) is truly an example that is needed in todays society. Not just nationally, globally.

This actually inspires even the entities of yhate.

(gestures toward you) Thank YOU!!

Yes, no matter your political beliefs it would be a nice thing to do to say thank you to those who make choices that we don't.

I was so glad to see this - I will put it on my blog, to honor my kids and everyone's kids who serve our country. Thanks!

**Beautiful** Thank you so much for posting this!!! It is definitely a tear-tugger. We're a military family, and just last November while sitting in an airport in El Paso NM, a man thanked me for my husband's service-- and since I've started blogging, I have had some of the kindest comments from total strangers. Great blog, BTW! Thank you, again.
