9/11

Looking at my dog one last time on the vet's table as the vet was giving him the shot that would make him sleep, and him looking at me as if saying, "Thank you for everything.".

its hard to say. there are alot of heartbreaking things i've seen in my life. my father telling my mother on my 15th birthday he remarried another woman. when i was 16 it was looking at my grandmother on her deathbed, not believing she was dead. in 1991 i watching my cat daisy die in my arms. a week before my buddy's death in 1996, it was the look of despair on his face. 9/11 was heartbreaking, but it was more anger than sadness.

i'll have to get back on the fiction part. to be continued...

Real:
September 11th
all the funerals I've been to

Fiction:
-the end of Schindler's List (although this is based on reality, so maybe it should go in the real category?)
-I've cried at the end of a lot of movies...mainly any good movie where one of the main characters dies

Real:
- the first time you see your father cry
- when your wife looks at you and says, "maybe we shouldn't be together"
- And then the moment that the above statement finally sinks in and hits you
- Sept. 11, although not sure it was heartbreaking, a strange feeling I can't really describe.
- the sudden and unexpected death a friend
- seeing my grandmother dying of cancer

I don't really get heartbroken over fictional stuff.

Real:

- seeing Mum cry. It happened twice so far, and I won't get into details, but it was just so sad and heartbreaking knowing there was nothing I could do except hug her. And it was shocking because, you know, Mums usually fix stuff and always know what to do...

my son's face in the hours after he found out his best friend was thrown through a car windsheild and decapitated in a car accident

my other son crumbling in tears at the same boy's funeral

Fictional:

I can't really say...I cry at commercials so I can't really narrow it down

Ohhhhhhh.......

Kristie, I did the same thing during that John Lennon bit on that show you mentioned.

Bono's American Wife...wow...that's a lot of sad stuff there...

Let's see...

Real:

Like everyone else said, 9/11, definitely.

The death of my grandma

Fictional:

Um...I bawled like crazy at the end of "Bicentennial Man"...seriously, that movie has the saddest ending I've ever seen!

Fiction: two films by Claude Berri

Jean de Florette and

Manon des sources


It is a story in two parts about a lifetime of love missed, because of greed.



Real: Iíll keep to myself.

How I long for the time went I thought of my life as being about the things it included. Now it seems to be more about what is no longer here.
