Friday Videos Like Kissing

Carin sent this video over – I hope it’s inspirational. Ignore the CNNchatterheads in the beginning and at the end.

If there’s a commercial in the beginning, I apologize. And if you need a link: Here you go.

I hope your weekend is spent with all the people who matter most – including the people in your books.

    Thank you for the warning, I watched it with the sound off and it was beautiful and sad and everything a reunion should be.

    Two things: at the end the lone soldier walking behind the family? I’m romance reader enough to hope he’s going home to a menage, at the very least.

    And does anyone really watch the commercials on videos? I spend the time watching the clock tick down.

    Happy weekend Bitchery!

    The little sigh he gave as he sank in to kissing his wife? Like, “This. This is home.”

    Oh!  This totally made my entire day.  Nothing can top the way he paid attention to each in turn and then sank into his wife!  I’m so glad you shared this!  Thank you.

    One of the talking heads did say something at the end that was so true. He gave single one-on-one attention to each one in his family.

    And I agree with Kati, that sigh he gave as he kissed his wife~*sigh*

    I shouldn’t have watched that!  My husband is currently on PDT for his deployment to pastures dusty and will leave at the end of November, leaving me at home with three children aged five and under.

    It’ll be a long wait for his R&R and a kiss like that…the farewell kiss is never as good.

    I FINALLY got around to watching this – og, so sweet!  Also, jcscott, am thinking of you and your family, and hoping you have lots of support.  Best of luck, you are a true hero!

    Coming home from a trip a few weeks ago, I saw a woman dressed to the nines, and two little girls in cute dresses.  They had a sign, Welcome Home Daddy.  (This was about midnight)  They were at the bottom of the down escalator, and they didn’t take their eyes off of it.  Finally, a soldier came down and when he got to the bottom he literally sank to his knees and took his family into his arms.  They stayed like that for several minutes-and the whole baggage claim burst into applause.  It was a privilege to witness, and yes I cried.

    Thank you not only to our servicemen and women, but to the families who wait.

    The look on his face! The way he pushed her hair back and cupped her face! That sigh! You could tell he was just wanting to sweep her up like he’d done with the children.

    I finally looked over the videos. I personally think filming people’s reunion is a really tactless graceless measure. I am happy for the people involved but I think our vets deserve their privacy. Its just seems really exploitive. I think it would be nicer for to media to take the cameras on the people’s faces. Somehow its seems more invasive then being a gawker in real life. Its just not classy, even to post.
    also one or two friday videos is more than enough.
