During my time filming the HBO mini-series, “The Pacific,” I had the honor of sitting down with veterans of WWII. I heard incredible stories of courage and personal power. It was unbelievable to hear about 16, 17 and 18 year olds fighting for a higher purpose because their belief in something greater than themselves.
It makes me realize how petty my day-to-day challenges are and how I should be able to overcome anything that comes in my path as they did.
I saw the true definition of courage in their eyes and I encourage you to think of them in your darkest moments. In the moments when you don’t think you can press on and you want to give in. Think of the soldiers who continue to charge ahead through the deepest adversity in true service of others. Let your heart be lifted and your burdens lightened by their example and sacrifice.
Today and every day, we honor those who have served and continue to serve so bravely so that we may enjoy our freedom! Thank you for your selflessness and your example for us all!
We salute you!
