Susan Boyle

If you haven't seen this story, check out the Youtube videos on the side bar. It took me a while to check it out, but its really quite moving.

Would you have been one of the people that sniggered at Susan Boyle when she walked out onto stage? And was your cynicism at the world exposed by Susan Boyle's performance like the judges? Did her performance provide you an insight into the crass prejudice and consumerism of our lives?

I found it a good lesson about humility, quiet confidence and respect for others.... values I sometimes find missing in sporting communities, not to mention myself.
