Suck it up! Someone always has it worse than you. Just the warmth and joy that this guy and his family exudes just is so moving. And he has a gift!
C_J35 said Really!? Nine views and nobody was moved by that? Wow...You guys are cold.
Beaux saidI watched that twice.
Um...I think I have something in my eye now.

Are you sitting around waiting for people to respond to your threads?...
Okay, I'm just going to warn all of you before you continue reading. I can come off like a heartless bastard. Yes, his story is touching. Yes, I was moved. Objectively speaking only on his singing ability, it's not that good. It's okay. If X-Factor wants to include his story into his candidacy, fine. But if it's a real singing competition, he won't last.
EDIT: I have to add... what is with this "someone else has it worse" thing? First of all, he may not have it worse. Sure, he has certain challenges that must overcome, but to say that he has it worse than I do automatically places his life experiences into a value hierarchy. His life is his life and the idea that we should feel better about ourselves because he might have it tougher is pitying at best and paternalistic at worst.
OGrady saidit was a really touching video. i liked it. Emmanuel is lucky that he has such a great and loving family. thanks for sharing
Wow...Do you feel good about yourself now?
I do not mean to place anybody on any sort of an hierarchy. I am just simply saying this guy has clearly been through a lot of troubles that I doubt most of us on here can even imagine. Yet he has this very positive and loving energy that comes from him.I am assuming from your post you are going thru somethings right now and I can only hope things get better for you.
