Tear jerker alert

Yeah. Another YouTube video for you all. But have a box of tissues close by when you watch this.

Sung-Bong Choi has had an incredibly hard life. After he was left at an orphanage at the age of three, he ran away at five-years-old and lived on the street for 10 years. How it's even possible for a child to fend for themselves in this way, I just don't know.

But even more amazing is to see this young man struggle to rise above his difficult past. I'm sure he has demons to fight on a regular basis, but his drive to move forward and go after a better life for himself is so inspirational. He shares his story on the television show "Korea's Got Talent."

And what will bring you to tears is, he does have talent. Boatloads.

I am humbled by people like this and the power of their will. I am reminded that everyone has burdens, but how we shoulder them defines who we are.

Here are the lyrics he sings (according to a poster on YouTube):

  • In my fantasy I see a just world where everyone lives in peace and honesty. I dream of a place to live that is always free. Like a cloud that floats full of humanity. In the depths of the soul, in my fantasy I see a bright world. Where each night there is less darkness. I dream of souls that are always free. Like the cloud that floats. In my fantasy exists a warm wind. That breathes into the city, like a friend I dream of souls that are always free. Like the cloud that float.
