Crying with Joy

How often have we cried with joy?  We saw a beautiful scene - it caught our breath and brought tears to our eyes.  How the strong energy of hope today has brought tears to many of us - Obama is now president! 

My thought is that we all have a certain level of beauty in our inner being - soul? - and when that level is reached and then stretched - we are moved to tears as we expand.

I think I must have heard the Peace Song (Let there be peace, and let it begin with me)  500 times before I could get all the way thru it without having tears.  Just hearing 3-400 people singing it so sincerely was very moving to me.
