Chris Medina at theAmerican Idol Season 10 Audition in Milwaukee
I have been watching American Idol for a couple of years already and it has become one of my favorite television show. In one of the episode this week of the American Idol Season 10 Audition in Milwaukee, the story of Chris Medina, one of the contestant touched my heart and made me cry. It was a story of REAL LOVE, the love that we've all been looking for ~ UNCONDITIONAL LOVE !
REAL LOVE is caring about the happiness of another person without any thought for what we might get for ourselves. It has the power to heal all wounds, bind people together, and create relationships quite beyond our present capacity to imagine. It gives us a feeling of genuine happiness.

The Chris Medina story is a beautiful story of Unconditional Love for his fiance, Juliana Ramos. An inspiration for everybody. Chris and his girlfriend, Juliana got engaged two years ago. Unfortunately, in October, 2009, his fiance met a car accident that left her paralyzed, severely brain damaged and with multiple fractures to her face. Chris stayed with her through thick and thin and he is her caregiver. The wedding was on hold due to her health condition and rising medical costs. Chris is a true man who demonstrated a true commitment to his partner. I wonder how many men are like Chris and will do the same thing for their girlfriend or love ones.
The judges (Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson) requested him to bring Juliana inside the room to meet her and gave Chris his gold ticket to Hollywood.
"I was about to make vows just two months from the accident ~ Through thick and thin ; Till death do us part; In sickness and in health; For better or for worse...What kind of a guy would I be if I walk out when she needed me the most" ~ CHRIS MEDINA
