Amy Poehler Cries During Charity Event Speech, Whole World Follows Suit

Hello readers, let me introduce myself: I’m the person who will never be as tremendous and wonderful as Amy Poehler. Consequently, I am also the person who will never tire of Poehler stories/videos/GIFs/anecdotes/locks of hair that I buy off EBay. (Don’t worry, they come with certifications of authenticity.)
If you woke up this morning and thought “Hey, I am in the mood to weep uncontrollably beneath incredibly unflattering florescent lighting and have my heart get the vapors,” then do we have the video for you! Close your office door (if you don’t have your own office, just close all doors. Every door in your entire office — heck, your entire building), draw the blinds and watch Poesus deliver a poignant speech about her work with the Worldwide Orphans Foundation at Variety‘s Power of Women luncheon. After the video is finished, just try to fight the overwhelming urge to hug your computer as if it were Amy herself. Just try. Spoiler alert: you won’t be successful. You’re going to wrap your strong lady arms around the screen and squeeze until you hear your computer let out a creak of protest; you’re even going to close your eyes while you do it. Just accept that truth now.
