Me too. Then I blogged about it.

I forgot to post in this blog. So beautiful, so bittersweet.

This one isn't as touching but it's still sweet:

I'm looking forward to the rest of the animations in the StoryCorp series.

I love these so much. Some of the best representations of personal narrative I've ever experienced.

Watch them, dammit!

I cried like a baby too. So beautiful and yet so sad.

These are all so amazing. It is interesting that animation, visual representations of humans, can sometimes be more emotionally impactful than seeing actual humans acting; as in the case of Danny and Annie.
