can i get an amen?


"There is a sacredness in tears.
They are not the mark of weakness, but of power.
They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues.
They are messengers of overwhelming grief…
and unspeakable love."
-Washington Irving

I don't understand what they say except strong emotion, sometimes. I often don't know which emotion without words. Sometimes by looking at other body language or facial expressions. I cry when I yawn. I think tears are too vaque. And what function does water coming out of the eyes have to relieve emotion? Why does the body do that? I totally don't get it. Sorry. No Amen from me.

Appropriately timed with Veteran's Day being yesterday. That's an eerie picture, but an eye-watering one. I'll give you an Amen, with a capital A.
My word verification is "pupil".
