Pass It On®

College

Looking back on the milestones of our lives, it is important to recognize those who have made our path a little easier. Perhaps it was a parent, a teacher, a coach, a mentor or someone we simply call "friend."

We think this scenario will resonate with many people-where a young woman, headed off to college stops...and expresses to her father her appreciation for "everything." We all have someone who helped us get to where we are today. The song, "Because You Loved Me" by Celine Dion, adds a poignant and uplifting touch to this message.

Video Transcript

Dad: Wow. College already?
Daughter: Yeah... we gotta go.

[lyrics]
For all those times you stood by me
And all the truths you made me see
For all the joy you brought to my life
For every dream you made come true
For all the love I found in you
You're the one who saw me through it all

Dad: And remember…
Daughter: Seat belt, drive safe, Call when I get there.
Dad: Well, bye. I love you.
Daughter: I love you too daddy.
Daughter: And thanks, for… everything.

[lyrics]
You were my strength when I was weak
You were my voice when I couldn't speak
Because you loved me

Gratitude, Pass It On.
A message from the Foundation for a Better Life

I'm a single father of 3. I've watched this video many times and it never fails to get me teary-eyed every single time.

I Truely feel the Love and connection of a parent and young Adult. When they are leaving on a journey and going on to the next step in their lives. Safety and dependability.
