Losing your first pet as a child is hard to do.
This little animal you’ve become so attached to is, all of a sudden, deceased, and you begin to learn about the circle of life. And it’s not as fun as “The Lion King” made it look.
This video shows a little boy going through that learning process. His fish dies and he’s prepared to say goodbye the old-fashioned way — the flush. He at first seems a little excited to see his friend go down the drain, but after a sweet goodbye, the reality hits him.
As soon as Flounder (I have no idea if that’s the fish’s name) disappears, the boy breaks into tears.
