A Lesson to Be Learned...from Susan Boyle

For all that pre-judge, and yes, we all either use to do this or still do, Susan Boyle teaches us to just wait to unearth the treasures from within.

47 Year old Susan Boyle wows the judges with her performance in the auditions for Britains Got Talent, singing I dreamed a dream from Les Miserables. CLICK HERE to watch

quote:

"Susan is a reminder that it's time we all looked a little deeper. She has lived an obscure but important life. She has been a companionable and caring daughter. It's people like her who are the unseen glue in society; the ones who day in and day out put themselves last. They make this country civilised and they deserve acknowledgement and respect.

Susan has been forgiven her looks and been given respect because of her talent. She should always have received it because of the calibre of her character."

and for those that have reached this blog post by googling Down syndrome and Susan Boyle, no Susan does not have Down syndrome .... I guess I will leave that for another blog post. erg
