My friend Bernadette--who by the way never reads my blog, so will never see this--won't watch a movie or read a book if she knows it's going to make her cry. She wants to be warned ahead of time so she can avoid it. I've never gotten that. I love it if a book or a movie makes me cry. I love feeling the emotions of the characters so vividly.
If a story makes me laugh, I enjoy the moment, and sometimes a laugh is just what I needed. But if a story makes me cry, I remember it forever.
Can you think of any stories that have made you cry?
