The 8 minute 46 seconds of the murder of George Floyd
Reading through this it brought something else to my mind that bothers me. Those commercials of kids with cancer. St. Jude in particular. I breaks me up
every time I see them. I donate to St. jude every year and I have them as one of my beneficiaries when I kick the bucket. I even have my name in their book of donors that they put out annually.
Just today I was reading two stories that I wrote for a newsletter about the 10 newborn coonhounds I discovered that were in poor condition that some cretin trough down an illegal country garbage dump. Their umbilical cords were still attached. We bottled fed them and four survived. I named the first one I found Longshot and taught her to catch a frisbee and do tricks. We entered Ashley Whippet competitions in the northwest, and while she never won, she did stunts like quickly catching six end-over-end flipped disks while begging, jumping to take it out of my teeth, between my legs, jumping over my back, and a host of others. Longshot, the slobbering, baying coonhound competing against mostly smaller, athletic dogs was a crowd favorite. Yep. That made me tear up. Hell. My eyes are leaking just writing this.
This funeral specifically:
I can't find the video, but it's the part where they pound their Seal Trident pins into the casket.
and every story of Veterans that make it out of hell to pass terribly at home.
(became a Clint Eastwood movie, btw, horrible way to go for a geniune Badass.)
The last scene in "Field of Dreams," which I've seen a zillion times. "Hey, Dad, wanna have a catch?" Kills me every time.
"Who do you play for?" - "I play for the United States of America!"
gets me ever time.
sentimental movies ... songs from the past that brings back memories.... some books I've read...
Just saw this on Reddit earlier today... timely with this thread still going. I’ve seen many “person surprises family member after long time away” type videos, but this one is by far the most memorable.
Not sure if you can see the title in the embedded video, but the man in the red hat had just spent 13 years in prison, and he got let out early and decided to surprise his mother. The way the surprise was set up is just incredible.
Large stacks of chips, a cocktail waitress that just keeps bringing you drinks before you ask for one, and a dealer who loves watching you win because his tips are along for the ride.
