Upon creation everything was Beauty, from the stars above to the ground beneath our bare feet. Every other inhabitant of this world was spared from the madness hidden in the perverse side on the
evolution of mankind. Ugly emerged from the same cradle where Beauty laid, and from our dreams and thoughts Beauty was joined by love and virtues like hope, perseverance and kindness. Ugly’s ego
invented hate, envy and deceit, and both grew walking side by side with men in their discovery of Earth.
Ugly brought wars and wastelands, wounds that won’t heal. Beauty brought creations, art and science, sports, education... unbreakable bonds came from the good side of our unfathomable spirit.
This tale does not have an end. Beautiful people continue to shine a light above the Ugly our own minds have created. How much Beauty is in you, this is your choice only. One easier to make than
to stick to. Have you made yours?
'Beautiful people’ is a show dedicated to those whose choice is to strive to inspire and help others, to be an example of Beauty in the world.
