Cal(my 7 yr old) has been viewing this clip on and off for the past few months. He always wants me to watch it with him and tell him what it means, but I usually tell him he has to figure it out by himself. Well, last night he finally figured it out and was almost inconsolable.
I spent an hour trying to cheer him up last night. Just wanted to share. The video's not too sad - or maybe I just don't have the same level of empathy
I think it is sad; but in a happy way because it showed that through diligence and hard work Kiwi was able to achieve his dream; even though it was some what of an illusion. If I win the lottery, I would help him have surgery to repair these little deformed wings. You know how I feel about my arms… so perhaps I read into it more than you; and side with your son’s level of empathy. The little tear of happiness or was it sadness was very touching.
See now you have to figure out if I am being empathic or down right sarcastic; I shall never tell :)
