We cry for lots of reasons: sadness, pain, fear . . . and happiness. When was the last time you shed tears of joy?
Just this morning I cried tears of joy three separate times while watching the same video. I saw it on the news and cried, I showed it to my partner on MSN and cried, and then I showed it to my daughter and cried again.
See for yourself here as this Chinese bus driver dodges a pole smashing through the windshield, and see if it makes you cry too.
I’m not quite sure why exactly this clip made me cry other than the obvious fact that the man is alive, except that it felt miraculous. I cried for joy at the sheer wonder of this man and his busload of passengers remaining basically unharmed. Also, I know it’s just a trick of the light or the glass, but as the pole comes in through the window and heads straight for the drivers head, it appears to be engulfed in white light.
This completely chokes me up in a purely thankful way!
