Remember the french book about the red ballon?

I always remembered the story of the red ballon from my childhood. I was so entranced with this book.
One day my Mom got me a red ballon. I will say this was a defining momment ( as Dr. Phil would say) in my life because when I
let it go I still remember the feeling of anguish when it did not follow and return as the boys in the book did to him.
Great life lesson " Set it free and if it doesn't come back well...it's gone"
