    Khalil's verson of 'beauty is moe than skin deep' Somone should make tis a song then another inspiration for a commercial..about how to loose weight..not that I', against weight watchers and weight lifters and..oh that 'GREAT' body but we should laways remember that to hit the mark of that Eternal inner beauty of purity that cannot be captured/not realling in a picture/mybe a painting..is the BEATUY so when my figure is not the 100% ideal i'm looking for I look to my husband and he says...don't worry it is all for some inner glory..thanks Ghibran...and you too Pier One..Jamaica West Indies..come and visit us sometime..anyone who reads these comments.
