Christian, the Lion video - You have to watch it!!
It's not even 3 minutes long and you'll cry every time you watch it. It's a good cry though. Turn on your speakers for the music too.

They do have a longer version of it once this video is finished. It is apparently true also, verified on Snopes. Just awesome.

Bails,

That is so sweet! Thanks for posting the link. I can't wait to show my daughter. Now I need to run out and rent a copy of Born Free so I can really have a good cry!

Best,
Susan

Oh I'm so glad you liked it, although how could you not! I just showed my husband and I'm crying all over again! It is just so awesome.

That is so sweet! Boy did I cry... if you haven't watched it yet stop reading my post....





I love how you can see that Christian is looking like, is that really them, it can't be and then boom he knows it is and takes off running. So so Sweet!

I know, that's when the tears start to flow.
