Even if this gentleman has no idea what’s going on or what his grandkids are making him due, there is something beautiful, something that speaks to the human spirit of perseverance, how we can experience the worst life throws at us and carry on and live life to one day dance with his kids and grandkids.
Some people pick themselves up and carry on like a champ, other people just wallow in their own pity and become broken by it. I hope I end up like this gentleman, regardless of what life tosses my way.
Fuck it. My eyes are gushing water like Deepwater Horizon right now. And yet I’m also laughing. [via]
