I don't know if this was posted anywhere, but I had to share this video with FSU. I saw it on another message board, and the OP there said that this video made him tear up. Of course, I was a bit skeptical about it and cynical about the tv manipulation and thought it'd be another Susan Boyle type of thing. Of course, a part of it is, but I couldn't help but be incredibly moved by this young man's story and performance. I was seriously crying after watching this.
I guess it goes to show you that despite everything, you can still be surprised.
