What Memorial Day really means

What Memorial Day really means

Editor's note: Erin Lindsay is a writer for Morning Express with Robin Meade. Her boyfriend Brock returned from a 10-month deployment to Afghanistan last November.

My boyfriend Brock is in the Navy and has served alongside the Navy SEALs, some of the most amazing men I’ll never get the chance to meet. SEALs are a unique breed of humans. They sign up to go on the most dangerous missions, but want none of the recognition. It’s a type of honor I will never fully understand.

Happy Thanksgiving from 'Morning Express with Robin Meade'

It's easy to get caught up in the cooking and cleaning and traveling and planning and shopping that all slam together in a pumpkin spice scented whirlwind on Thanksgiving. Easy to forget that at it's core... the 4th Thursday in November (2nd Monday in October in Canada) is a day to stop and reflect on the blessings in our lives. To say thank you to the people and circumstances responsible for bringing good things into each day. All of us at "Morning Express with Robin Meade" and HLN hope you have more than your share of things to be thankful for this year... here are some of the things (in no particular order) we are giving thanks for today:

HLN Anchor Jennifer Westhoven:
Thanksgiving has always been my favorite - this year Im deeply grateful for the new seat at the table – a high-chair. Last year at dinner was the moment when, after years of effort and some heartbreak, I told my family that a baby was on the way. Baby Jamie is my biggest dream come true. Also thanks to my company’s benefits to support that! And thanks to friends & family, for the support and love they give.

Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez want you to 'get a life'

Recently, HLN's Robin Meade got the chance to down with Emilio Estevez, the writer and director of "The Way" (in theaters Oct. 7th). You probably saw him in movies like, "The Breakfast Club," "Repo Man," and the "Mighty Ducks" films. She also got to talk with the star of the film, Martin Sheen... a Golden Globe winning actor who played President Bartlet on "The West Wing," not to mention starring roles in "Apocalypse Now" and "The Departed". Sheen ALSO just happens to be Emilio's dad!

Much like the plot of their new movie, the conversation focused on family:

Thank You Dad for Letting Go

All the "Salutes to Fathers" we've featured on "Morning Express with Robin Meade" this week made me think of my own dad and inspired me to write about him.

My maternal grandparents gave me a purple Huffy bike for Christmas when I was six years old. One problem: I didn’t know how to ride one.

Enter Sandman: sleep Morning Express style


Are you getting enough sleep? We had several stories involving sleep today. First there was the air traffic controller who apparently fell asleep on the job.

Then we had video of VP Joe Biden who looked like he was nodding off during the President’s speech.
