What makes you cry? You know. Really tear up.

  • It can be a picture.
  • A movie.
  • A song.
  • A memory.

You could be cleaning the house, making dinner, minding your own business when out of no where you see it and bam! You’re a puddle.

For me it’s mostly scenes from movies.

I get choked up every time I see this scene from Saving Private Ryan.

This scene from Toy Story II.

The first 5 minutes of Up (Pixar I hate you!).

Or the death of Boromir (geeky yes I know).

I can’t help it. I don’t know why.

I can flip the paper, read about death, destruction, war, not shred a tear, and yet I’ll see this picture of this little girl getting a surprise visit from her dad at school who she hasn’t seen for six months (because he’s been on tour in Afghanistan) and it hits me like a truck.

Does this ever happen to you?

Nothing more than that to this post. Just wanted to share.
