Sweetest Video You’ll See Today. Shuddup, man…I ain’t crying. Sniff…I got something in my eye…sniff…allergies. A Utah girl who recently moved to Ohio for medical treatment met the Pope in an emotional moment yestersday. 5-year-old Lizzy Myers suffers from a genetic disease known as Usher’s Syndrome, which gradually leads to blindness and hearing loss. Her mom says meeting Pope Francis was at the top of her “visual bucket list,” all the thing she hoped to see before losing her sight. So she and her parents waited for 6 hours outside the Vatican hoping to see the Pope pass by after his weekly address. You can see in the video that Pope Francis stops as he sees her in the crowd and blesses her in the sweetest possible way. I’m not crying!
