Earn This

Towards the very end of the movie “Saving Private Ryan”, Captain John Miller (played by Tom Hanks) who’s about to die, tells the young Private James Ryan (played by Matt Damon) to “Earn This…Earn it.”

Make no mistake, we’re here because of the sacrifices so many people made that came before us. In some cases, with their lives. As well as the sacrifices that people make today, day in, day out with no attention, thanks or praise.

To honor all those sacrifices, let us earn this next day, this next hour, this next minute, this next second.

Earn this. Earn it.
