I watched Kevin Costner's message at the Whitney Houston ceremony on Saturday. I have rarely heard or seen such an eloquent and touching discourse, that was also obviously painful for him to do. He spoke to the common church experiences they had as youngsters, he interjected humor and he told a back-story of postponing "The Bodyguard" for a year to fit that movie around her touring schedule because she was the right person for the role. I have just elevated him to an even higher level in my "respect for certain people" category. Had he delivered such a dialogue in a movie, as an actor, he would have easily received an Academy Award. In this case, it was simply from the heart. Wow, what an impressive human being!
