Good to know we still have sensitive children...

Raspy:

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 :)

uno - now that you have mentioned it i have to watch it out of curiosity.

ydgrand: I watched it once and my general thoughts were that Kiwi spent a lot of time nailing trees to the side of the mountain so that when he jumped to his death(as he cant fly) he would have the illusion of flying through the trees. Kinda a bit sick now that I think about it...
