Now THIS is talent!

Susan Boyle's amazing performance on "Britains Got Talent"...just reinforces what I'm always telling my kids (usually met with a response of much rolling of the eyes): "NEVER GIVE UP!!"

The lyrics are so moving (from Les Miserables) And, even though the song has a sad tone, it is truly uplifting:

I dreamed a dream in time gone by 
When hope was high, 
And life worth living 
I dreamed that love would never die 
I dreamed that God would be forgiving. 

Then I was young and unafraid 
When dreams were made and used, 
And wasted 
There was no ransom to be paid 
No song unsung, 
No wine untasted. 

But the tigers come at night 
With their voices soft as thunder 
As they tear your hopes apart 
As they turn your dreams to shame. 

And still I dream he'll come to me 
And we will live our lives together 
But there are dreams that cannot be 
And there are storms 
We cannot weather... 

I had a dream my life would be 
So different from this hell I'm living 
So different now from what it seems 
Now life has killed 
The dream I dreamed.
