Yes, I know I've already written a blog post about Susan. I will probably write more blog posts about this extraordinary woman who came out of nowhere and stunned the world with her angelic voice and plucky personality. I'm not a religious person by any means but sometimes when things like this happen, I have to wonder. Susan is no picture of Jesus Christ in a French toast for the faithful to make pilgrimages to seeking healing for their bodies and absolution for their souls. Susan represents something much more important than the superstition and mumbo jumbo of much of religion. Susan reinforces our belief in ourselves. A belief that any one of us from the humblest roots can overcome the forces of mockery and cynicism by having the courage to confront those negative barriers to a better life.
What is really unique about Susan is that she overcame the mockery and cynicism not by lowering herself to use the same tactics against those who mocked and ridiculed her but by her own innate grace and good humor. We can all learn something from Susan. And that is not to judge a person by their appearance or social standing. Susan taught us all how the pure beauty of her voice and personality quickly changed our perception of what many of us viewed as a frumpy unattractive middle aged woman to a beautiful woman who is loved by millions around the world.
It matters not if she wins (or doesn't) the "Britain's Got Talent!" contest. Susan Boyle is already a much loved world personality. With so much evil in the world today, it is so refreshing to see someone like Susan Boyle enter the world stage. She makes us all feel good. My only regret is that we didn't find her until now. But again, maybe there is a reason. Perhaps there are forces greater than we know who have bestowed the gift of Susan Boyle to us. All I know is that I smile and feel good all over whenever I hear her sing. The world is a better place now that we know Susan Boyle. May you have a long and happy life Susan, giving us the privilege of hearing your beautiful voice and soul. I love you Susan!
