I Cried For A Week!!
2 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this as a nine-year old and I cried for a week afterward. I thought it was so unfair that that poor male bird finally got the miracle he was waiting for, just to have it taken away from him in the end. It sort of reflects my life in a way--sometimes we struggle to obtain a hard-fought goal, just to have it snatched away from us when it's within our reach. I know some people would say that perhaps that goal was never meant to be, but it still hurts like hell when everything that you've worked so hard for has turned out to be for naught. It makes you want to give up and say, "I'm not going to fight any more-screw it!! But we can take a lesson from the surviving bird; he continues on with his life despite the horrible loss that he just went through. I guess that could be a great role model for we humans and the human spirit! If life knocks you down, just pick yourself up, brush the dust off, and keep on keepin' on!!!!
