Dunkirk Vet, 97, Breaks Down in Tears After Watching Movie: ‘I Never Thought I Would See That Again’

A 97-year-old vet who survived the battle of Dunkirk spoke through tears after watching the premiere of the new Christopher Nolan movie.

Ken Sturdy, a native of Wales who currently lives in Calgary, Canada, donned a suit jacket adorned with medals when he headed to Calgary’s Westhills Cinemas on Friday to watch the World War II drama that he lived through nearly 80 years ago.

“I never thought I would see that again,” Sturdy told Canada’s Global News. “It was just like I was there again.”

The film tells the story of the historic battle that took place between Nazi Germany and the Allied forces. The nine-day battle saw the evacuation of British and Allied forces from the beaches of the namesake French town as the Nazis continued their advance on the opposing forces. In the end, 338,226 men escaped, but thousands also perished.

RELATED VIDEO: Why Did Prince Harry Attend the ‘Dunkirk’ Premiere?

Sturdy was just 20 when he worked with the Royal Navy to help stranded soldiers surrounded by the advancing German army.

“I was in those little boats picking them out of the water,” he told Global News. “I had the privilege of seeing that film tonight but I’m saddened by it because of what happened on that beach.”

Thousands of soldiers died or were captured during the battle, and Sturdy said the film took him back to those harrowing days.

“Watching the movie, I could see my old friends again and a lot of them died in the war,” Sturdy said. “I went on convoys after that in the North Atlantic. I had lost so many of my buddies.”

“Don’t just go to the movie for entertainment,” he continued, his eyes filling with tears. “Think about it. And when you become adults, keep thinking.

“Tonight I cried because it’s never the end,” he said. “It won’t happen. We the human species are so intelligent and we do such astonishing things. We can fly to the moon but we still do stupid things.”

Lady Gaga Tears Up While Talking About The Downsides Of Fame On ‘Sunday Morning’

In a revealing new interview with CBS’s “Sunday Morning,” Lady Gaga opened up about the downsides of fame. 

The pop star, who made a name for herself by dressing up in outrageous outfits in public, got candid as she spoke about the lack of privacy she experiences as soon as she steps out her front door. 

“I’m very acutely aware that once I cross that property line I’m not free anymore. As soon as I go out into the world, I belong, in a way, to everyone else,” she said to CBS’s Lee Cowan. “It’s legal to follow me. It’s legal to stalk me at the beach. And I can’t call the police or ask them to leave.”

“I took a long hard look at that property line and I said, ‘Well, if I can’t be free out there, I can be free in here,’” Gaga explained, pointing to her chest. 

The “Perfect Illusion” singer also spoke about how much she misses regular, everyday human interactions.

“I miss people,” the artist said as she began to tear up. “I miss, you know, going anywhere and meeting a random person and saying ‘Hi,’ and having a conversation about life. I love people.”

The 30-year-old spoke about fame’s negative side earlier this year, saying, “I don’t think I could think of a single thing that’s more isolating than being famous,” during a discussion with Jamie Lee Curtis for Variety magazine.

Gaga also told The Guardian in 2013 she used to hide in her house “to preserve my image as a superstar to my fans.”

“I don’t mean I am a superstar, I mean that they only ever see me at my best,” she said. “And it really drove me crazy.”

You can watch Gaga’s entire interview from “Sunday Morning” in the video above.

Cities and Art that Bring Us to Tears

2015-05-27-1432685026-3544586-HP_1_Western_Wall_Jerusalem_Shavuot1.jpg

So, Memorial Day is over. But, some memories continue to linger… I keep thinking about an intriguing article I read in yesterday’s New York Times Op-Ed section by T.M. Luhrmann, which asks the question, “What gives certain places their extraordinary power to move people so deeply?” It starts with a story of a teenager who went to Jerusalem. “There he met God… he had an experience so remarkable, so terrifying, so powerful… Jerusalem has this effect on so many people that experiences like this have a name: Jerusalem syndrome.”

2015-05-27-1432685077-7864077-HP_2_StendhalComposite1.jpg

Then, the article mentioned the so-called Florence syndrome, which brings many visitors to their knees in the Uffizi Gallery. But, actually, the more accepted description for this phenomenon is the Stendhal syndrome, named after the famous French writer, who saw Giotto’s frescoes in the Basilica of Santa Croce in Florence, and was overcome with emotion. He wrote, “I was in a sort of ecstasy… I had palpitations of the heart… life was drained from me. I walked with the fear of falling.”

2015-05-27-1432685127-3301214-HP_3_SistineMadonnaComposite.jpg

So, all of this makes me think of the famous Russian writer Feodor Dostoyevsky, who, during his visit to Dresden Gallery, dropped to his knees and started to cry in front of the famous painting, Sistine Madonna, by Raphael. All his life, he had admired this painting and kept a black-and-white lithographic reproduction of it in his apartment in St. Petersburg. Many years later, confronting the original painting in person, he experienced rapture…

2015-05-27-1432685162-5438485-HP_4_Audrey_Hepburn_and_Gregory_Peck_at_the_Mouth_of_Truth_Roman_Holiday_trailer.jpg

I haven’t read anything about a “Rome syndrome” yet, but my first experience with this city made my heart palpitate when, as a teenager, I saw the Hollywood movie, A Roman Holiday. For us living in the Soviet Union, to travel to Italy was virtually impossible. Yet, there I was, along with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck, climbing Spanish Steps and driving a Vespa by the Coliseum. I was in heaven… Many years later, during my emigration, I found myself living in Rome, continuing to be in awe of this Eternal City.

2015-05-27-1432685204-9068459-HP_5_ParisSyndromeComposite.jpg

And last, but not least, let me mention Paris syndrome, which, according to the New York Times article, Japanese tourists experience when they arrive in the City of Light. Wikipedia mentions that there is a 24-hour help line run by the Japanese embassy to help tourists suffering from this condition, viewed as a severe form of culture shock. Luckily for me, my recent trip to Paris was pure joy.

Yesterday, I stopped by the Norton Simon Museum, to see a small exhibition of rare paintings on loan from the famous d’Orsay Museum in Paris. One of them is Arrangement in Grey and Black No.1, by American artist Whistler. This painting, commonly known as Whistler’s Mother, is one of the iconic artworks of the 19th century. And to see it, here in LA, is a rare treat.

2015-05-27-1432685270-5246928-HP_6_IMG_9967.jpg

Next to Whistler’s painting hangs another jewel on loan from Musée d’Orsay – a portrait of the French writer Émile Zola, by Edouard Manet. The young writer wrote a passionate essay in defense of Manet, who was rejected from participating in an official Salon in 1866. And now, all this is here for us in LA.

So, my friends, treat yourselves to a taste of Paris at the Norton Simon Museum – but, be warned, the emotions might overwhelm you…

Groom’s Compassionate Wedding Dance With His Mom Will Move You To Tears

At his wedding, groom Luke Rheault had planned to do a special mother-son dance with his mom Rebekah, who had been diagnosed with ALS a year before the nuptials.

Once the song, “Hero” by Mariah Carey, started playing, Luke said something felt off. His mom was sitting in her wheelchair and Luke was towering over her. So he did something unexpected and sweet and got down on his knees for the duration of the dance.

“I remember feeling uncomfortable standing above her for the first few moments of the dance — it just didn’t feel normal, and that’s when I got down on my knees and danced with her,” Luke told The Huffington Post. “I had no idea of the impact it had on everyone until they had told me.”

“I wanted her to feel so special in that very moment, so I tried to make the best of it and spin her around and continue smiling with her,” Luke added. “I don’t recall at any point in the wedding thinking that these might be my last few moments with my mother. So I did what felt right at the time, and I’m really glad I did because it’s a memory that has well-served its purpose.”

2015-05-20-1432155603-7735714-rheaultdancecloseup.jpg

Luke and his wife Kristeena tied the knot in November 2008 at Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach, Florida. But it wasn’t until March 2015 that the bride decided to post the heartbreakingly beautiful video to YouTube.

Sadly, Rebekah died in September 2009 — less than a year after she and her son shared their dance.

“There was not a dry eye in the house, everyone was so touched by the dance,” the bride Kristeena told HuffPost. “The tears started as soon as Luke dropped down to his knees to dance with her. You can see Luke’s daughter Arianna in the background crying and hugging my mother and then Luke’s father.”

It wasn’t until Wednesday that Luke watched the dance in its entirety for the first time. He said it’s brought on a wave of emotion and many wonderful memories.

“I found myself reliving all that this woman did for me — everything that she embodied as a mother and everything she taught me to be,” he said. “I tell it to everyone: ‘It’s a void that can never be filled.’ I’ve never considered myself to be a mama’s boy, but I’ve always appreciated everything she has done for me. Growing up and getting older enhances the power of those feelings.”

My Wedding Dress: True-Life Tales of Lace, Laughter, Tears and Tulle

My Wedding Dress: True-Life Tales of Lace, Laughter, Tears and Tulle


My Wedding Dress explores the wedding outfit as a touchstone garment in women’s lives. In the tradition of Dropped Threads, this collection offers twenty-six true stories from well-known writers and fresh new literary voices. These are intimate stories about relationships; not just those between men and women, but between women and their mothers, friends and children. And, of course, with their wedding attire – a relationship that is sometimes simple, sometimes complex, but always fascinating in what it tells us about individual lives and aspirations. Some of the tales are humorous – the bride whose skin is dyed fuchsia on her wedding night or the woman whose shopping-savvy aunt takes her to New York’s garment district. Some are romantic – the woman who puts on her dress eight years after her wedding only to be caught by her husband when he comes home early from work or the quickie immigration wedding that turned into the real thing. Some are devastating – the bride who loses her mother to illness only days before her wedding or the woman whose mother tells of being kidnapped by her future husband. And some are revealing – the woman who wears her first wedding dress for her initiation ceremony into a convent and her second to marry her beloved; the dress that waited patiently in a shop window and then hidden in a box on a closet shelf; the same-sex wedding at age eighty; the thrift shop wedding dress that gets used for everything "but" a wedding. All are honest, personal and profoundly moving. As Anne Laurel Carter explains in her introduction, the pieces "fell easily" into four categories, so that’s how the book is organized. "Something Old" looks at how traditions like honouring one’s ancestors affected wedding dress choices, from a grandmother’s gift to a father’s old leather jacket, but also at how such traditions can play a role in ways you least expect. The pieces in "Something New" focus on dreams for the future, whether that means breaking away from the expectations of one’s family or choosing/creating a wedding dress (and a future) on your own. In "Something Borrowed," writers tell of all the reasons behind borrowing (or trying to borrow ) dresses, for whatever reason, and "Something Blue . . . Or Peach . . . Or Striped . . . Or Floral . . ." looks at exactly that-the non-traditional choices women have made, and why. These stories re-create the range of emotions that are invested in dresses and wedding days: confidence, optimism, hesitation, fear, fury and hope. When you work away at the seams, even the simplest of wedding outfits reveals all manner of memories and meanings. And whether you’ve been married or not, the stories in My Wedding Dress will have you looking back with new eyes on your own life, and exploring what the phrase "my wedding dress" means to you.

The Thank-You That Brought Iyanla to Tears – Iyanla: Fix My Life – OWN

Ryan has four—soon to be five—children with four different women. During a discussion with Iyanla about love, infidelity and the responsibilities of being a father, Ryan and his mother begin to work through their issues on Iyanla’s stage.

Ryan, whose father died when he was 7 years old, gets emotional when he addresses his mother, who admits that she was verbally abusive towards him when he was a boy. First, Ryan forgives her for the past. “I forgive you for tearing me down,” he says. “I forgive you for every time I hurt myself. I forgive you. I love you. I don’t know what I’d do without you.”

Then, Ryan reveals why he’s thankful for his mother. “Even though you weren’t my father, Mom, you showed me how to be a parent. And I never walk away from my kids because of you,” he says. “It was hard for me to come up here. I drove six hours. I wanted to turn around so many times because I knew God was going to break me down, and I didn’t want it to happen yet. But I’m sick of hurting.”

In the video above, Ryan bares his soul as an emotional Iyanla stands behind the family.

Iyanla is also teaching a six-week eCourse on forgiveness.
