I work with handicapped children. My wife does so more than I do, but still. These children are capable of so much and yet they are so underestimated. They even underestimate themselves. So when I saw this video I cried. Yes, me, the big “Lurch-looking, 6’4″, 280 pound guy” was crying over an excerpt from X Factor.
I figured I have to show it to the kids at House of Hope, the children’s home where my wife works. I thought it might inspire some of them to chase their own dreams. While I was at it I decided to show it to you as well. I think it’s inspiring.
I will say the choice of songs isn’t my favorite, but the guy puts so much of his heart into it and his story already had me touched. Watch it and you’ll see what I mean.
