We’re a hardened bunch in the Lost At E Minor office (ok, ok, granted, we do run the odd cute animal post every now and then), but even we were deeply moved when watching this video about Melvin, who suffers from Alzheimer’s, and his heartfelt determination to buy a bunch of roses for his beautiful wife Doris, who has taken care of him for him for so many years.

Of course, it attracted its fair share of closed minded reactions (we’ll leave it to you to add in more strongly worded language), but we couldn’t help but be moved by the raw emotion displayed by brave NFL recruit Michael Sam upon hearing for the first time that he had been drafted by the St Louis Rams.

Ha! No way.
