"From little things, come big things," his father used to say.  

This is the heartwarming story of Airman Gail Halvorsen, The Candy Bomber, as told by Tom Brokaw with a little help from the Morman Tabernacle Choir.  Be sure to watch the entirety.  It is worth the full 14 minutes. (Thank you to Nancy Klotzsche for sharing this story.)
Sometimes the little opportunities that fly at us each day that can have the biggest impact.

Keep your word.  Integrity begets hope, faith and peace of mind for you and others.  A West Berliner recipient of a chocolate bar once told me, “Without hope the soul dies.”  His hope and faith were based on the belief that the British, French and Americans would stand by him and that someone in America cared.
      ------Gail Halverson

    1. I watched several times. I love his spirit and his example of giving. And Tom Brokaw does the story justice. Even in our darkest days, I often look back to what our ancestors endured during and after WWII. They had so much courage. I guess I can muster up some courage as well.
