{happy video} chimps see sunlight and grass for the first time

If you're sitting in an office space right now and all you can think of is getting outside in the sunshine, watch this video of former lab chimps who were released into a sanctuary, some after being kept in cages for 30 years. As they step out for the first time, they blink in the bright sun. They hold each other. They tentatively feel the grass. It is extraordinary. You will smile at 1:26 when two chimps hug each other from the sheer joy of it all.

Watch. (If you're sensitive to animal issues, it's OK. This video may make you cry but only happy tears.)
