Beauty Truly is in the Eye of the Beholder

Have you seen the latest YouTube video sensation?  
I wanted to post it here, but apparently it is now so popular that it has been disabled from being copied.
So instead I will tell you that this is Susan Boyle.  I think she is from Scotland.  She was on the British version of American Idol, which Simon of American Idol also judges.  
I can only tell you to go to YouTube and look up Susan Boyle.  You will see many versions of her appearance.  Pick one of the longer versions that are over seven minutes long.  
As you will see, many people were starting to ridicule this woman who wanted a chance to display her talent just because she is so far from looking like what the world deems as "good enough," which means physically "beautiful enough."
But did she ever give everyone a smack in the face, including Simon.  
It is beautiful.
It is awe inspiring.
It will bring a tear to your eyes.
So go watch it, already!
