You Can Tell What's in a Cup…

…when it is upset.

“Australia’s Next Top Model” contest ended in a horrible mistake. Host Sarah Murdoch announced the wrong woman, who proceeded through her acceptance speech at some length until Murdoch, clearly being spoken to via her earpiece, ruefully admits the error.

What happens next is what matters most. Model Kelsey Martinovich, now stripped of the crown she wore for less than two minutes, turns immediately to the embarrassed Murdoch and comforts her.

She doesn’t stand there stricken.

She doesn’t start to cry.

She doesn’t curse the host or the producers or the show or God.

She sees a fellow human being in distress and cares for her.

In a society that seems preoccupied with gaffes and scandal, a moment, please, to celebrate decency and goodness wherever we see it.

    You know, there’s been some doubt as to whether or not this gaffe was real or staged. Has there been any more info to come out on this? Regardless, your point is valid and I love the first line: “You can tell what’s in a cup when it is upset.”

    Follow the link, Pat, and you’ll see that it was truly a terrible live error.

    Thanks, John, for sharing good news amidst all the junk swirling around! :^)
