Smorgasbord of Goodness

Brandon gave me a luxuriously large amount of time today to catch up on "stuff," and I unearthed all kinds of goodness from my inbox. Here are some of my favorites:

On the power of words.

Two (here 2) of the latest "I'm Mormon" videos.  (A lot of people have been critical of these videos, saying it's a joke to suggest there is any sort of diversity among Mormons--supposedly we're all a bunch of whiteys living in Utah, like me!--but my best response to that is: Glenn Beck & Harry Reid. Need I say more?)

I dare you to not to shed a tear at the end of this.  I know Bocelli has done it, Paul Potts wowed Simon Cowell doing it, and there are actually even several videos of Pavarotti himself doing it at different times and in different places--but this one is my favorite. (High drama at the end.)

Brene Brown is my new favorite person. Watch her TED talk a little lower on the page.

If you watch nothing else from this blog post, watch THIS.  If this doesn't touch you, there is something seriously wrong with you.

(And you'll have 7 years of bad luck if you don't forward this to 13 people . . .)
