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

Gratitude. Pass It On!

GRATITUDE MAKES ME CRY. I love and appreciate the respect shared reminding me of my FATHER.

Jacqueline from LOTO (Lake of the Ozarks) AUGUST 25, 2021
My granddaughter, Ivy, started kindergarten two days ago. I had seen this video on tv (PBS) awhile back and it brought tears to my eyes. This was my father (and my mother) when I left home for college the first time in 1970. What goes around comes around. I sent this video to my son and daughter-in-law who are witnessed similar feelings with Ivy, their 5 yr old daughter (my granddaughter) getting on the school bus for the first time two days ago. I sent a message with this video to them stating that it reminded me of Ivy… 12 more years … 🥲,👍🏼,❤️,❌,⭕️

Cassidy from Illinois AUGUST 6, 2021

I love this ad. I remember exactly having this happen to me with my mom when I left each time from NYC for college upstate or down in Georgia. My mom is gone, so my sister was in her place, now my sister just passed last Christmas, so these commercials make me swell with tears .Thank you for those feelings .

I think that this is what people need more in there life to relies on how much someone can make them feel

Rick from Azusa, California APRIL 13, 2020
My daughter got married this past October in 2019. I/we chose this song for our Father/Daughter dance because I first heard it when it was played at her "graduation" from kindergarten. This "tough guy" turned into a marshmallow and lost it on both occasions. The video brought back all the emotions from the memories of both those occasions. If both father and daughter in this video are actors they both "hit a home run". That said, me and my daughter would have done it for real without acting...and you wouldn't have had to pay us anything to do it!

Tiffany Barnfield from Birmingham  APRIL 3, 2020
I love it!

Vaanya Shivkumar 9J APRIL 2, 2020
Time flies really fast, before our parents know we grow up and it is our time leave to shapen up our future. But when we are there their time just goes in telling us what is right and wrong and ultimately we looose the quality time which we could spend with each other and when it is our time to leave it is just too late to do anything and at that point of time we can't say anything other than ''I LOVE YOU".

Samik shetty from Dubai APRIL 2, 2020
Very nic story of a daughter showing her utmost gratitude to her father for everything he has don(,but I have one question where is the MOTHER,like is she dead or sleeping idk),but for real this story exactly shows gratitude in its purest form

This commercial & song is so heartfelt. It reminds me of when I moved out on my own for the first time. My father raised me & it was so horrible to leave him. I miss him so much. He passed away November 29th 2007. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about him.

Pass it on. Your love counts.

Richard from Maryland MARCH 5, 2017
I've seen this at least three times -- even came to the website specifically looking for it after seeing it on TV -- yet it still brings tears every time. I'm not a parent, but I can feel for the father, and the daughter too. It even makes me feel for my own parents, and wonder how they felt all those years ago when I left home. These actors did a great job, by the way. I wonder if they're actually father & daughter.

Wanda from Boston, MA MARCH 2, 2017
I love this commercial, it reminds me of the time I dropped my son of at College!

Gratitude is a good feeling that makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.Sometimes we should express our gratitude for the small and simple things like the scent of the rain, the taste of your favorite food, or the sound of a loved one's voice.

Just returned from leaving my Granddaughter at U of Alabama. I witnessed a similar touching scene there. The character quality of Gratitude is beautifully illustrated in this video. No one gets tired of hearing "Thank you" and "I Love You". My Granddaughter reflects the values her family has instilled in her. My heart is blessed by this ad.

VERY touching because I'm a dad of two daughters. Thanks for the memories and the hopes...

Blair from Mississippi AUGUST 12, 2013
I teared up instantly with the first two music notes (I have always loved that song.) While courtesy is a great thing--I would much prefer a half-hearted "thank you" over nothing at all--a truly heart-felt "I love you" or "thank you" is one of the greatest everyday blessings that you can give or receive. God Bless.

Wendy from Seattle AUGUST 10, 2013
I just saw this ad on tv and completely lost it. My father passed away last year and as he lay dying, I was able to thank him for being my father. The one thing I learned from this experience is to tell people in your lives (while you still can) how much you love them and thank them for being a part of your life.

It wasn't the grades she recieved that directed her to college, it was the values and character building created by her parent, which most likely commenced prior to school.
