4-year-old devastated to learn that photos can be deleted

Nothing lasts in life—not youth, and definitely not digital photos. This came as especially bad news to 4-year-old Cadence, who accidentally deleted a snapshot from her Uncle Dave.

In an emotional YouTube plea, Cadence explained the problem of impermanence and beseeched her uncle to send another photo. (We imagine he held onto the original, just in case.) 

Let this be a lesson for anyone with clumsy thumbs.
