The Anchoress writes: Why Susan Boyle matters so much.
I’ve given it is some thought, too. My take goes like this. We all feel at some level like nobodies in need of affirmation. Some of us live our entire lives trying hard, but unsure even of our successes. I know my strengths, but they are not necessarily in demand. Sometimes, I’m the only one clapping, and then again, I wonder why I bother at all. As long as we’re living, as long as we’re still trying, at least, we are in the game. We haven’t given up. Now, to me, Susan is like Judgment Day. Finally, we find out Someone is aware; Someone notices; Someone is clapping loudly and eternally.
I hope and pray Susan doesn’t get messed up since she is so beautiful just as she is.
