Hawaiian Falls Hosts Military Families


TONIGHT ON THE CBS EVENING NEWS. GILMA AND DOUG, WE’LL SEE YOU SOON. THANK YOU. SEE YOU THEN. THERE IS NO BETTER PLACE TO SPEND A HOT SUMMER DAY THAN AT A WATERPARK. FOR SOME FAMILIES, A TRIP WAS ABOUT SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST COOLING OFF. AS PHOTO JOURNALIST SHOWS US IT WAS ABOUT CREATING NEW MEMORIES AND CONNECTING WITH OTHERS LIKE THEM. IT IS ALL ABOUT FUN. THIS IS OUR FIRST TIME BEING HERE, SO WE’RE GOING TO GO TO HAWAIIAN FALLS. I AM JUST LIKE YES, BUT IT IS NOT CHRISTMAS. I KNOW. AT SNOWPAUL EXPRESS, WE REALLY CONNECT CHILDREN WHO ARE ALL DEALING WITH THE SAME TRAGEDY IN THEIR LIFE. WHEN THEIR FATHER PASSED AWAY, SNOWBALL EXPRESS HAS BEEN THAT THING FOR THEM, THAT THING THAT IS LIKE IT’S OKAY, BECAUSE I HAVE THE SNOWBALL EXPRESS. EVERYTHING IS BETTER BECAUSE I HAVE THE SNOWBALL EXPRESS. SNOWBALL EXPRESS GIVES THEM AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE WITH OTHER PEOPLE WHO ARE JUST LIKE THEM WHERE THEY DON’T HAVE TO EXPLAIN MY DAD HAS PASSED AWAY OR EXPLAIN WHY OR HOW OR WHY THEY ARE DIFFERENT. THESE KIDS HAVE GOT KIND OF BAD MEMORIES GOING BACK, BUT WHEN THEY GET TOGETHER, IT THE REALLY ABOUT HAVING SOME FUN, AND CREATING GOOD MEMORIES TOGETHER. EVERY DAY AS A REMINDER OF SOMEONE THAT WE LOVE, BUT ALSO SOMETHING THAT WE LOST. SO COMING HERE GIVES US AN OPPORTUNITY TO NOT NECESSARILY FORGET, BE BUT TO HAVE A POSITIVE MOMENT. FOR US, IT’S AN OPPORTUNITY TO GIVE BACK TO THE COMMUNITY, ESPECIALLY TO THOSE MILITARY SERVICE MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES. OTHER ALL THE THINGS WE HAVE
