What is that?

This video almost moved me close to tears. I am currently reading and digitizing letters written by my grandfather to my father. And this video came to me at an odd time.

That's a great idea to digitize :-)

Obviously it would be annoying if an elderly person asks the same stuff repeatedly in comparison to a child who's still cognitively developing.

not really convincing. y shud the father ask the same question? cant be coz he forgets as he remembered what he had written in his diary years ago.

i was thinking... senility

Life is a circle, what goes around comes around, very nicely depicted in the video. And do you relate to this more bcos you are a father too?

I agree on the senility part...they remember at times, they dont remember at times.

Well, a good concept, but does not stir up emotions, probably because the father's journal sounds cheesy. May be sounds better in Greek(?).

Feels very contrived. Does not appear natural.

You would expect a 3 year old to ask that question 20 times, not a 60/70 year old father who can exactly pick out the sparrow story page.

boring as hell. Hawkeye if you found it moving, I think you are the one who's getting senile.

I thought the dad very much remembered what he wrote in his diary.. he deliberately asked his son way too many times, just to make his kid realize the point..

great video.

"This video almost moved me close to tears."- Can't you just say you cried? It is OK to cry.

I cried too.
