Tear...I sit and weep. The snarky looks from the young people, the bored expressions of the older. How we pre-judge, just breaks my heart.
How many people have never been given a chance because we decide they are not up to a task before we've allowed them the opportunity to try.
Every person has worth, and deserves respect. Physical attributes, quality of clothes, bone structure, size....none of those things matter, age.
I think we have all been guilty of pre-judging at some point in time.
This is a beautiful reminder that we need to examine our hearts, and accept all - for what treasures perhaps we have left uncovered, that could have brought such joy to our lives.

Thank you Trip - I had not seen it. I am humbled and broken. Which is good, for that is the only type of person God can use. And that was my prayer this morning before I arose from bed. That I could be a person that God would use today - that there would be someone today that I could help. Before He could use me he had to work on my heart and spirit.

For once in his life, Mr. "roll your eyes" obnoxious Cowell was rendered completely speechless - and WRONG!
It was worth it just to see him put in his place!

Man, she was AMAZING! Hope she goes on to get the recognition she deserves!

Many many times in my life I have been rejected just because people refuse to look beyond the outside. I thououghly understand Miss Boyle. I was absolutely ELATED when she sang. Bless her for her tenacious spirit. This woman has a wonderful gift to give the world. I wept over this video, she is magnificent.

Kudos to Susan Boyle; it just goes to show you that you can't and shouldn't judge a book by its cover. Miss Boyle shows you that, "yes you can".
