again, I cry

I know.

There's editing. The shots of skeptical, bored faces may have actually been thrown in from any other point during the show. And it may have been a set-up. There seems to be one of these every season.

Still. Watching an underdog, hands visibly shaking, experience the amazement of being unreservedly cheered by an entire stadium ... there's nothing like it.

I wish every Jonathan could have that experience, just once.

And wholehearted honour to every Charlotte who is, without a doubt, a hero among friends.

Judge not lest you will be judged. For the Same measure. That felt like Jesus standing right beside and protecting him.

Heard somewhere about this happening - knew someone would send it across my path - clicked on it quickly - and sat back in wonder...

So, so many people with incredible but hidden talents.

wow.

Still can't decide which fills my heart with amazement more - to hear that talent or to see that kind of friend. Wow.
