Grateful American Published Today

Today is publication day for Grateful American: A Journey from Self to Service by Gary Sinise. You can buy it here. If you have been following me on social media, you already know that I was part of the launch team to help promote Gary’s book and I was given an advanced reader’s copy. I have posted my review on Goodreads and Amazon, and I am sincere when I say this book has changed me. What Gary Sinise has done for veterans and their families is truly miraculous.

After reading his book, I purchased this backpack from his Foundation. I’ve been carrying it to work with me every day.

A few weeks ago, I passed a receptionist in one of the buildings on campus. She called out to me and asked if my backpack was from the Gary Sinise Foundation—the logo looked familiar. I told her it was from his Foundation.

Then she told me the story of how nice and kind Gary is, and that she met him when his Foundation sent her and her children to Disney World after she lost her husband. I had no words in response. What could I say really, other than I was sorry about her husband. What Gary is doing for veterans and their families became very real to me that day. He touches lives one by one by one, and he lives the gospel message.  

I encourage you to purchase a copy of the book. My Kindle copy was downloaded today, and I’m getting ready to read the book over again. His message is one I don't want to forget. It is a message of conversion and love and hope.
