Testing the Ol’ Tear Ducts

This video’s been making the rounds over the past few days, but for those that have not yet clicked on it, now’s the time. If it doesn’t make you cry, you might not have tear ducts. …or a heart.

For me, its power lies not in the music (which is fairly pedestrian), nor in the generosity of Green Shoe Studio (though it’s a great “Faith in Humanity, Restored!” moment). Instead, it’s those few seconds at the end when you can see Fred thinking back on those many beautiful years with his wife. Talk about a lump in the throat.
