The video hit me like a ton of bricks. I was on the train coming home from work one evening in April this year and somehow stumbled across it. I don’t know where or how I found it but it definitely had a profound effect on me.
Watching it on the crowded train I had to stop myself from getting emotional. The combination of the powerful message and the beautiful storytelling just seemed to hit a nerve. Those that know me will know I don’t get emotional very easily but watching this would have to make even the most hard-nosed father tear up.
Because of this video, I was inspired me to make Memory Jar a reality so that I could record our special family memories. And it’s hopefully also making me a better parent today. Watch and enjoy.
