Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past seven days, you’ve heard of the British sensation Susan Boyle. Her story is at once amazing, inspiring, and astounding. A less than camera-ready Scottish woman with a voice that melts the most jaded, including Simon Cowell. Fans of Susan, meet Collin:
This morning, between mopping the tile floor, mixing up a batch of cookie dough, and running a test load in the dryer to see if Amazing Fix-It Husband’s talents have saved the day, I heard this story about Collin Johnson. Born at a little over 2 pounds with considerable brain damage, his parents were told he’d probably have a hard time learning to walk and have permanent disabilities. He failed his hearing test. Twice. Today, at 10 years old, he has perfect pitch and is on track to be a rock star with an 8:30 curfew. Turns out, despite the doctor’s predictions, God’s plans for Collin included more Zeppelin than anyone could have anticipated.
In a time when all thats broadcast on the airwaves smacks of tragedy, it’s nice to hear a little good news every once in awhile. Are you ready to rock? 🙂
