" Sometimes people are beautiful."~ Markus Zusak
In all the ugliness the world has seen in recent years, months and even just last week, it seems that Mr. Zusak's statement is quite true.
I have seen many act of kindness and heroism that gives hope to humanity and indeed makes some people beautiful.
There are other times that I have seen people as being beautiful.
The child who offers their twice licked ice cream cone to another sibling. Or the lady next door who rescued an abandoned cat from the side of the road.
How about the guy who mowed his elderly neighbors grass. Or the kid who picked flowers out of his yard to give to his mom.

What about the lady who went to the senior citizen home and sat and talked with the residents. Or how about the student that took mentally handicapped students with them to prom.
How about that hippy dude that goes around hugging trees. Or the kids who make signs from recycled cardboard to sell lemonade to passer-byers.
Yes, all of these people are beautiful.
You see to me, beauty is not what is on the outside but truly what is on the inside.
Are you being beautiful today?
PS. As you know by now, today is Earth Day.
It is also Mondays Music and the theme is Earth Songs or something related. In keeping what I have said here and this theme, I offer you these two videos.
