Two Of The Most Beautiful People On The Planet
Sharon rejoices at the news of Baby Jolie-Pitt's upcoming arrival. As she has said, she believes them to be two of the most beautiful people on Earth. Granted, they do look awfully nice through a camera lens and they've given piles o' cash and time to various trendy concerns.
But please excuse me if I don't celebrate their "beauty" with the rest of you. In my mind, beautiful people don't:
--Leave their spouses for someone else
--Refuse to be forgiving and make peace with their parents
There are all kinds of beauty, and unfortunately we celebrate this flashy stuff a lot in this country. It's a shame that eleven wheezing West Virginia coal miners can't be considered beautiful. This world doesn't see beauty in a man who puts his life on the line by descending repeatedly to the dark crust of earth to feed his family. This world doesn't see beauty in a man who perhaps gave up his last few minutes of air to save a younger man with small children to feed. That's not red carpet beauty, but it is sterling class.
