Hidden Talent

There are ordinary people that can do unexpected and extra-ordinary things. Click here to watch Susan Boyle, a seemingly ordinary woman share something extra ordinary.





The first thing that struck me as I watched this video was how judgmental people are. As soon as she walked on stage people were judging her, assuming that she wouldn't be capable of much. More amazing than her talent is to watch how people's perception of her change as they experience what she has to offer - their opinion of her changes and their respect for her grows and she didn't change anything - they did.

Ya, I noticed the same thing. Wouldn't it be great if we could all learn to see one another for who we are rather than what we look like.

I agree - far too often people do judge others by appearance. This was neat to watch - see how people realized how wrong they were to make assumptions about this woman. It's just another reminder that there is beauty in everyone - we just have to be looking for it instead of the flaws.

Crazy, and sad, and happy. That was fun to watch. I had heard something of her but never got the whole story...
