I saw this video on the news last night. I love it! And I’m glad it gives the history behind the story.
On September 4, I wrote a post saying how much I was enjoying watching America’s Got Talent this season. In that post, I shared videos of the three people or groups that were my favorites during the first of the semi-finals programs. Those three had also been among my favorites throughout the season. I was very happy when I discovered that they all made it into the finals.
The second semi-finals program was last Tuesday. The videos below were my favorite performances that night. Like the previous week, the ones I chose had been among my favorites throughout the season.
I was happy when two of my favorites that night made it into the finals, but disappointed that Luke wasn’t chosen. Everyone who moved on to the finals was excellent though, so I can’t fault the decision.
Tonight is the finals program. The Unbeatables have been the favorite of my favorites since the first time I saw them, so I’m hoping they will win. At the same time, I wish there was a way for everyone to win, because they all deserve it.
This season, I have fallen in love with America’s Got Talent. These are my three favorite performances from last night. All of their stories are incredible and inspirational and so is their music. (I didn’t see the whole show so I don’t know if my other favorite group performed.)
A friend in New Mexico just sent me this link. Can you imagine the difference it would make if many countries in the world planted trees at this level.
My son, Sreejit, sent me this tweet today. It was nice to start my day with good news and a sense of hope.
America’s Got Talent performances seem to consistently bring tears to my eyes. As I write this post, my tears are running down my cheeks. I started to cry when I watched the first video, but they began to pour as I watched the second one.
So many videos I’ve seen lately t have brought tears to my eyes. Just saw another one on Facebook. It feels good to experience tears from all these positive stories instead of from all the traumatic things going on in the world today.
I saw a report of this America’s Got Talent performance on CNN a few minutes ago and searched for it on the internet. Watching it left me with tears running down my face, tears because I felt inspired, felt joy, felt hope.
In a few hours, I will be with Amma. Being touched by this video of a young man giving his all and seeing the effect he had on the judges and the crowd seems like a perfect lead-in to a day of heart opening.
As I age, I find myself drawn to older people who can serve as role models in the aging process. I met a woman in Amritapuri whom I think of in that way. She lives a life of adventure even though she is well into her 70’s. The woman in this video is a very different kind of role model. I don’t see myself following in her footsteps, but I thoroughly enjoyed the video. I hope you do too.
