A Breeze of Good Deeds # 23: Imagine
Published on October 15, 2011
My husband is out so I had liberty to use the laptop all by myself. I was scanning all the latest Facebook posts when I stumbled upon this heartwarming X Factor Australia audition video. It started with an interview of the contestant who is originally from Iraq. I wasn’t expecting that I’d get choked up the moment he walked on the stage. And singing Imagine by John Lennon, out of all the songs made his performance more touching. Even Ronan Keating (I miss this guy) could not hide his emotions. You have to watch this! And get some tissue paper before clicking the play button.
I couldn’t agree more when one judge said, “It makes everything you worry about… it’s just so pathetic.”

A great war leaves the country with three armies - an army of cripples, an army of mourners, and an army of thieves. ~German Proverb
