For example, slightly corny things or stuff like particularly moving songs or movie scenes, etc. might be more apt to make you tear up, or you might spend more time reminiscing about the past, or feel heartache for something lost or days gone by; bitter nostalgia...that sort of thing.
I'm usually a pretty crusty and cynical guy but I've been feeling unreasonably "tender" and melancholy over the last week or so. Just tossing this out there to see if its a mass phenomenon or not.

One thing that humans have forgotten is that we are all connected.
Jesus once said to look at the ocean, look at the waves crash on the shore. Give each wave a name, Bob, bill, Jen, kelly, frank, steve, lana. Now look at the ocean and realize that the waves are all part of the same body.
He also said that we are all like rays of light coming from the sun. We are all connected.
