I saw this video on my blogger friend Di's page, and I loved it SO much, that I wanted to post it myself.
For those of you who don't watch American Idol, one of my favorites who didn't make the final 13, was Chris Medina. His story, briefly, is that his beautiful fiancee was in a horrific auto accident right before they were scheduled to get married. She is partially paralyzed, she suffered a traumatic brain injury, and he has stuck by her through it all, and seems to be committed to stand by her for the duration.
I was sad to see him get booted from Idol, but I don't think you have heard the last of him.
His new single, which was written specifically for him, by someone who believes in his talent, says volumes.
I have always been wary of words, words, words, because as the old maxim says, actions speak louder.
How many people talk a good story, but don't follow through? Their actions don't reflect what they say they believe.
Because in the end, you know who will be there for you. You know who you can call, anytime. You know who will come, always. You don't need any words to tell you.
You just know.
The people I love, my family, my friends, don't need me to tell them how I feel. They know. I show them. I hope I show them enough.
Take a couple of minutes, and listen to this sweet young man pouring his heart out.
And be who you say you are.
What else is there?
