Skip wrote about an awesome video made three years ago. I had not seen it, nor had I seen anyone using the sign. Perhaps you are in the same boat when it comes to walking up to a soldier and saying “thanks.”
Upon further reflection, I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that it is sometimes awkward to approach a stranger when most of us have been socialized since childhood not to talk to strangers. So if we resist talking to strangers at all, it’s not surprising that we sometimes find it difficult to open our hearts to one to the extent of thanking them for our very Freedom.

I’ll be using this sign, but I’ll try not to avoid going up and saying the words, “Thank you.”
Thanks Skip for an awesome video and idea.
