By now you’ve probably heard about Susan Boyle. No? Come on! She’s only the most amazing singer on “Britain’s Got Talent” (so far) and the latest viral sensation on YouTube. You have to check out the video and then show it to your children (if you have any, of course!). Just watch it!
Look, at some point in our lives we’ve all felt like an outsider. We’ve all been put down, dismissed, and made to feel inferior, like we didn’t belong. Susan Boyle is living proof that talent and heart can be wrapped up in an unconventional package. She affirms that beauty can take all forms.
I’m reminded of the pivotal scene at the end of the movie “Revenge of the Nerds” where Gilbert rallies support to end “nerd persecution”.
We have news for the beautiful people. There's a lot more of us than there are of you.
Truer words were never spoken. In this age of fabricated “reality” ( “The Hills” or anything on MTV for that matter), plastic ideals, and celebrity obsession, it’s refreshing to see the personification of not “judging a book by its cover”.
