HEARTWARMING VIDEO: Get Ready, Jimmy Stewart Might Make You Cry Today

In 1981 Jimmy Stewart read an adorable, funny poem about his dog on The Tonight Show. It's simply beautiful. Reading a four minute poem on TV would never happen happen today. Maybe it should. I won't lie: by the end, I was a mess.

In 1981 Jimmy Stewart read an adorable, funny poem about his dog on The Tonight Show. It’s simply beautiful. Reading a four minute poem on TV would never happen happen today. Maybe it should.

Notice how the audience laughs at every joke, and then suddenly, the tone turns, and they listen with rapt attention. That’s what I love about great writing!

I won’t lie: by the end, I was a mess. This clip is going viral today, thanks to TheDailyWh.at.
