That's a hell of a nurse right there. More so just a hell of a human being and thank god she is in a profession where she gets to unleash that heart of hers onto people who need it. It's pretty clear that this girl was in good hands.
I remember when this first happened a couple years ago and crying like a baby. Maybe the nicest thing a dying person can do.
This is a segment that aired on the ESPYs this year. Heartbreaking story about a 15 year old hero who lost his life when he heard bullets and instantly jumped on top of two girls to shield them from danger.
Here's a real quick one. A teacher in Texas told his class is birthday was coming up. They asked him if he was going to have cake and celebrate and he said he couldn't remember the last time he celebrated his birthday.
On his birthday he walks into his classroom to a surprise party. Streamers, cards, cake, and singing. He gets overwhelmed by the niceness of his students and breaks down.
Making someones day is so god damn easy sometimes. It's pretty cool to be nice.
Jack's graduation speech.
I don't have very much time these days, so i'll make it quick... like my life.
You know, as we come to the end of this phase of our life, we find ourselves trying to remember the good times and trying to forget the bad times.
And we find ourselves thinking about the future.
We start to worry, thinking, "What am I gonna do?
Where am I gonna be in ten years?"
But I say to you, "Hey, look at me."
Please, don't worry so much
Because in the end none of us have very long on this earth.
Life is fleeting.
And if you're ever distressed
Cast your eyes to the summer sky
When the stars are strung across the velvety night
And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness turning night into day... make a wish.
Think of me.
Make your life spectacular.
I know I did.
I made it Mom.
I'm a grown up.
Okay. Tears time.
This week we got the ending of Rudy. Sometimes I throw this on Netflix and just skip to the end to get a quick good cry in.
Anytime they show his parents or John Favreau in the stands my body gets taken over with chills.
Something about people being insanely proud of their loved ones. That's my sweet spot. The captain telling Rudy to lead them out the tunnel. His parents when they find him. His teammate starting the Rudy chant. The moment his mom realizes they are chanting for her son. After the sack when his dad grabs the guy behind him and says "thats my son!" John Favreau screaming "who's the wild man now?!" Chills. Chills. Chills. Tears.
You guys ready? Got a classic sports one today. Derek Redmon in the 1992 olympics. He pulled his hamstring half way through the race but was determined to finish. He fights off everyone trying to stop him or help him. His father comes running in from the stands. Evades security. Derek realizes that its his dad and loses it. Then his dad (who has on an absolutely fantastic outfit) walks with him to the finish line.
Happy Saturday! Hope you're hung over. Let's cry!
I texted my little brother to ask if he had any go to cry videos and he said Americas Got Talent videos. He's not wrong. Here are three videos that may induce tears. The Sal Valentine one is my personal favorite. When Heidi hits the gold button the his instant reaction is priceless.
Today we have the video/story of Jim Craig searching for his father after winning the gold medal in the 1980 Olympics.
Little back story. Craig's mother died when he was a junior in college after a long bout with cancer. It was only Jim and his Father left and his father was hurting. His mom was his biggest fan and supporter, as moms are. After winning the gold medal in the olympics. Over coming the most staggering odds in the history of sports Jim only wanted to do one thing. Find his father in the stands and have a moment.
Here are two videos. The depiction of this moment in the movie Miracle and the real life footage from 1980. In the actual footage you see him mouth "where's my father" while scanning the crowd. People are pointing and trying to help him find his dad. If the cameras stayed on him for when they actually connected I'd be a bag of mush.
You can skip to 0:13 if it doesn't automatically.
You can skip to 0:29 if it doesn't automatically.
You guys ready to shed some tears again? Alright lets go!
Soldiers returning home are the bread and butter of tear inducing videos. There are a ton to choose from. This one is hands down the one that gets me the most.
This kid is the captain of his football team. He's been mentally preparing all day to play football. To lead his team. Has to be mentally tough, keep his head high and set an example for his teammates. Goes to the handshake line where putting on a battle face and remaining stoic in front of you opponents is super important and then BAM none of that matters anymore.
This kid was waterworks from as soon as he has his dad in his arms. Didn't matter where he was. Didn't matter who was watching. He's got his dad back and he's not letting go. For a good thirty seconds he's got a tight grip on that hug. Has to be an unreal feeling.
If you know me or follow me on twitter you know I'm a proud cryer. Not afraid of it. From the ages 14-23 I don't think I ever shed an emotional tear. Only times I cried were when I was throwing up or when I got hit in the nose. Then I graduated college. Became an adult and little bitch all at the same time.
Now I'm not just going around crying willy nilly. If I see a news story or a movie during the week that gets the tear ducts going I don't try to stop it. I don't control my emotions, they control me. But if I don't get my cry in naturally I like to wake up hungover on Saturday mornings and throw on some youtube clips that are guaranteed to get me going.
It's a nice feeling you know? To have feelings. Get a little cry session in before you get out of bed then hop to and go on with your day.
To start us off we got the number one video that is guaranteed to get me sobbing. Jason Mcelwein, the basketball manager with autism that comes off the bench and drops about a hundred points.
The fact that the student section knew he was going to play and brought posters of his face to the game. The first three he makes the crowd goes nuts and I get chills. Then every shot that drops the entire bleachers are like an accordion. Whoosh. Whoosh. By the time he makes the buzzer beater and they storm the court my face is wet.
I like the Yankees, watching TV shows and talking about stuff.
