This heart-tugging video captured the extraordinary reunion of two old friends: a man and the gorilla he raised from infancy. It had been five years since British naturalist Damian Aspinall had seen Kwibi, a lowland gorilla who was born at Howletts

This was such an incredible story. I happened to catch part of it on the Nightly News and thought how amazing it was this man actually found the gorilla. It was so touching to see that animal almost act human and excited about seeing the man again. Our lives, heads,minds and hearts are filled daily with so much bad stuff that goes on in this world, it is so sweet to see there are still really incredibly nice things that go on also.
