What moves you to tears?
A book? A song? A poem? A movie? A couple kissing in the park? Weddings? Hostages being freed? What?
For me...always the Desiderata and Art Garfunkle singing "Bridge Over Troubled Water."

O.K. - I'm admitting my BIG secret.......I get all choked up when the national anthem is sung. I'm an absolute wimp noodle during the olympics after a USA win. I cry during 4th of July parades.....

The sight of my enemies driven before me. The lamentations of the women.

The Phantom of the Opera (unless there's a really poor actor in the main role). Sounds sappy I know, but it's true.
Anything dealing with the Holocaust.
Van Gogh (in person) (the art that is, not the person. If I met him in person, I'd be worried.).

Reading journal entries about people who have just lost their pets. Reduces me to buckets of tears. This is especially bad because i'm usually reading these things on breaks at work, so then i have to sniff and wipe my eyes and look to see if anyone has noticed that i'm bawling.
Around that wonderful PMS time, it is unbelievable what can make me cry. Anything on tv, even sappy garbage.
I'm pathetically emotional, and i love it.

Hallmark card commercials, Little House on the Prairie episodes, thinking of how much I love my grandparents...
