Get your tissues ready.


Movies are meant to make us feel something, to reach deep into our hearts and tug on those strings. While everyone's emotional threshold is different, it's not hard to think of that one scene that hurts our souls to this very day.

Also, SPOILER ALERT for all of these films.

Reddit user, u/Honest_Product_850, wanted to know when to have a good cry when they asked:

What's the saddest scene in movie history?

It's okay to feel sad.

It's just probably smart not to feel this sad all the time.

"Get busy living, or get busy dying."

"The Shawshank Redemption, when Brooks was released from prison, Still gets to me."

"Came here to say this. It's sad because the whole message of the story is to never lose hope but in some instances hope can be lost. When you're elderly and truly have no one sometimes death is the only way."

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.
