Land of the Free

Because of the Brave
This video still makes me cry every time. Thank you to the families that sacrifice as well:


  1. Those videos always make me cry. The pure joy on a child's face at seeing their parent must be so overwhelming but thrilling to them. I haven't even watched the video yet and I'm getting teary-eyed!

    BTW, I mentioned you and one of your projects in my decoupage post {2nd one down on my blog}. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Thanks so much for sharing that video--it makes things very real.

  3. Oh goodness...if you can watch that without choking up, than you have no soul.

    Thanks for posting!

  4. Thanks for that, Melissa. I've seen this clip a number of times and the little boy's face, when he sees his dad, kills me every time.

  5. where are the tissues when i need them!!!!!

  6. WOW! What a great video, I have not ever seen that before. We never think about the scrifice's that our troops and their families make or have made. Thank you to all of our military and their families.

  7. Thanks for posting this. I am in Ireland so did not know it was Veterans Day.

    Video did make me cry.


  8. Thanks for that post. It made me cry and we go through that often. My kids cry when dad gets home too. It is so hard on the little ones as they don't comprehend time it just seems so long to them.
    Mine leaves in about a month and believe me Christmas will be hard with him gone.
    Thanks to all of them that serve.

  9. I don't have sound on my computer here at work - but I'm still sitting here with tears streaming down my cheeks just from watching the video! Thanks for sharing it!

    Land of the Free - Because of the Brave. I say AMEN to that!

  10. Thanks, Melissa. I'd never seen that video. Wow.

    Yes, ma'am. Land of the free because of the brave. Not something to take for granted.

  11. Thanks for sharing that touching video. I'm still crying. It was wonderful!

  12. Great post. Love the video :) Scenes like that are common around here in our area. I jsut got back from a trip to DC last week...I cried a lot there, too. So much to be proud of.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a note!
