So Inspiring...

Tonight after the hubs went to bed and while I was laboring over a little goody for a give away that's coming! (Yeah, its definitely happening!) I decided that I had to change the channel because the hubs left it on one of the Spanish ESPN channels that was covering the Atlas futbol game. So while I was channel surfing I stumbled across a wonderful HBO program called Brave New Voices. Have you ever heard about it?
Its basically a poetry championship and let me tell you I've never been really into poetry readings, but this was AMAZING! There were so many great poems and all of them were inspiring. I can't imagine standing up in front of so many people, I would be a wreck and I would be stumbling over all my words, but these kids were wonderful!
Here are a couple of my favorites!

This one brought a smile to my face! 
These boys were awesome and it was nice change from some of the really deep, emotional poems.

You will have to turn the volume up for this one. 
This one was extremely emotional. My heart broke as I listened to her.

I wish I could write half as beautifully as these people!

Now, I must go. My eyes are heavy and I feel like my fingers are getting lazy and slurring my typing together.Hope you all have a beautiful night!
