It was a very singular choice
Singular: (def) a grammatical number that denotes “one”
How often have you heard the phrase “it was a singular moment in his life”, or “it was a singular achievement”, or “she was a lovable but singular old women”, or “that was one of his singular achievements”, or “this is a most singularly defining event.”

We’re seeing many singular events in the world today, Obama, Lekota, economic meltdown, and daily unique events of global consequence given by a very unsingular media.
Don’t let crass compliance of mass conformity blind you to the very singular, incredible, unique, joyful, indescribable journey of life in Jesus
