5 Videos That Will Make You Cry (If You’re Kind of a Softy)

June 15th, 2010 by

OK this has nothing to do with waiting till marriage, but I just wanted to post it. Most great internet videos make you laugh out loud, or maybe shock you. These videos make you cry. But don’t worry. It’s a happy cry, not a sad cry. This has nothing to do with waiting till marriage, but given that many of you are hopeless romantics to the core (or at least idealists), I figured you might like them. So grab a tissue box, and click play.

1. Christian the Lion

For all the details on the life that Christian had as a lion cub living in London with owners John Rendall and Ace Berg, including how they purchased him from Harod’s department store as a cub, check out this article “Christian, the lion who lived in my London living room

2. Man returns to Vietnam to meet the daughter of the man he killed 30 years ago

3. Little girl is about to tell her class about her dad who’s in Iraq. He comes home early and surprises her.

This fourth grader made a video about her dad, the soldier who’s currently fighting in Iraq. The next day, when she’s about to present the video to her class, her dad comes in…home early.

4. Dan Jansen Visa Commercial

OK, maybe I’m just a wimp. But hero stories bust me up. Short and sweet. Damn you, Visa *sniff*, damn you.

  3. Mike says:

    @Jesse – Yeah that pretty much means you’re a sociopath, sorry. Haha j/k. It’s definitely not a bad thing! Maybe you’re just a thinker, not a feeler. :-p

  4. Samantha says:

    I love Christian the Lion, but I had never seen the other videos. All of them made me cry. I feel so bad for the veteran and the daughter of the Vietnamese soldier killed. I am happy that the daughter could forgive the vet.
    The story of Dannie and Annie was so cute! That’s true love! It reminded me of the book “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom. I recommend that book for all you softies out there!
    I love videos that make me cry. Some of these are going to go up on my site

  5. Jessica says:

  12. Driven Forward says:

    The story of Dannie and Annie also of Christian I think are two stories I will never forget. I was sitting on the edge of my sit waiting for them to get bit but no never and they walk away like a big happy family. o, i think i’m going to cry again. Then Dannie and Annie to be blessed to find true love such as theirs is a miracle that everyone longs for.

    GOTTA LOVE Danny and Annie!!! This guy is HILARIOUS!!! So many great quotes.

    “too tired, too sick, and too sore to do any other damn thing.”
    “it’s nice of you to keep the radio around the house.”
    “there’s a knowledge knowing when you get home you can hug somebody without them throwing you down the stairs and saying ‘Get your hands off me.'”
    “I always said ‘The only thing I have to give you is a poor gift and it’s myself.'” (The next part about coming back if possible is kinda creepy, though.)
    “Would you please drink for water”?

    I’m not a big believer in the idea that each of us has one specific “soulmate”, but it sure seems like Danny has met “the one”.
