Heartwarming, Uplifting...Again

I posted a link to a video like this, from the same show, almost 2 years ago. Well, here's another moment of sheer inspiration, discovery and joy. 

Why do I--like so many others--feel for this kind of moment? Because it reaffirms the power of hope, dreams and desire. 

Enjoy.

Good choice, even having to put up with Simon being right...

Too bad some local kid with a digital camera would not shoot some low quality video of Susan, talking about her life, etc, and get it up there on youTube. No doubt it would harness a small but significant %-age of that huge traffic and earn something for "Susan", the source of all this inspiration for overlooked, and otherwise insignificant people everywhere. :)
