I'm sitting in a coffee shop and I watched the video of the girl being surprised by her father, and I'm literally crying. A barrista comes up and asks me what's wrong, and I show her the video, and she's crying. A couple of other people gather, and they're crying. The whole damned coffee shop is crying.

It did the same thing to me. The love in that moment expressed in the child's face is simply unforgettable.
