Wow, I consider myself a pretty stoic man, but this brought tears to my eyes, even more so the second time I watched it.

Bud, there are several things allowed in the Man Laws to bring tears to your eyes. Taps, a cherry 67 Mustang, losing a grandfather, a kick to the.. well you know, and anything to do with your daughter.

What a sweetheart. I wish men never had to leave their families. That we could always live in peace. My husband told me years ago that we could if everyone who believed said the Rosary every day and every Catholic attended daily Mass. I gave him the roll-eye on that initially, but not so anymore.

That's why you gotta keep the Kleenex handy.
you know, to wipe the monitor off.

I've seen ones like this before and it's always the same - the disbelief, the tears, Daddy's here, Daddy's not dead, he's here, he's alive. All the loss and fear held at bay, and released.

And maybe he has to go away again. God bless all these children, and help them bear up under the strain.
