Cry Me a River (Saturday music)

On a day when I happen to need reinsurance of the heart & soul, CLS posted this link on the All Board. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lp0IWv8Q…

With 20 million plus You Tube views, chances are you’ve seen Susan Boyle sing I dreamed a Dream.

In that case, I recommend the thought provoking post Two reasons Susan Boyle means so much to us before you list to her sing, Cry Me a River, courtesy of  Scotland’s Daily Record.  h/t and back to you, CLS

No matter how much we mock those we consider beneath us, it’s much more satisfying to be reminded that everyone has dignity.
