Yeah, I was on the elliptical in the gym...I probably looked very odd to the people that were not watching the TVs. I was trying so hard not to cry, but when they showed that really sick woman being loaded into the truck...oh man. :'(
Tonight makes me forgive the AI producers for making practically the entire season one big commercial.
Yes, people can say a lot about hating Idol or reality tv or whatever, but I give the Idol producers HUGE props for using these votes for a good purpose. It's sad that this is what it takes to raise money for these people and organizations, but if this is what's necessary- rock on.
And I agree- that video with loading the woman into the truck. Then when Ryan said she died 2 days later. I lost it. :'(
I am so glad that not only did they help those children in Africa but also all the people they are going to help in the states...I went to Africa 7 years ago and it is so sad to see the lack of school and medicial care that is avalible...being a techer it breaks my heart that many of them can't read I lost it when they said they found that little baby 50 miles away and tried to get him help in time but he died on the way...ahhh...I am a man and not afraid to admit that I cried like a 2 year old...
