5 Videos That Will Make You Cry (If You’re Kind of a Softy)June 15th, 2010 by Mike
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.
