10 Random Life Affirming Videos Guaranteed to Make You Weep the Big Fat Good Tears

By Dustin Rowles | Seriously Random Lists | April 16, 2013 |

All of which is to say, I had no idea what write about today. Instead, I spent my time on YouTube, where I ended up challenging myself to find a video that would elicit tears. But not the super sad, OHMYGOD Sarah Mclaughlin PETA commercial tears or Blossom in Beaches bawl-your-face-off tears, but the happy, life affirming, wistful, or sweet tears brought on by hope and loss and sacrifice and the amazingness of people.

What I'm saying is, I put together a collection of videos designed to make you cry, damnit. And I fully goddamn guarantee that if you watch all ten of these, at least one of them will do the trick. Most of you won't make it past the first video because you are WEAK.
