A couple with cerebral palsy wed: make-you-weep video of the week
This video of an Israeli couple with cerebral palsy getting married has translation, but words aren't even necessary.
I made the mistake of watching it during my commute to work. Dave looked up from his newspaper to find tears pouring down my face. I showed the video to him.
"Honey, why are you crying?" he asked. "It's beautiful!"
What could I say, on a crowded train?
I cried because of how happy this couple is—and how happy I felt watching them.
I cried because of all the love surrounding them.
I cried because they made it work; the wedding band was on a chain he could more easily slip onto her hand.
I cried because I always cry at weddings.
I cried because the video opened up the floodgates of my hopes for Max's future.
Someday, I hope Max will find love like this.
