Thanks to my hair stylist for this inspiring clip about Patrick Henry Hughes. This phenomenal young man is blind and has some condition that severely limits his movement. He travels in a wheel chair and is unable to stretch out his arms. He plays a wonderful version of Debussy's Clair de Lune and plays trumpet in a university marching band. Yes - a marching band!
Here's the clip:
As the newscaster says, "Patrick Hughes plays so that we might hear the music of opportunity and the sound of potential."
What an inspiration to us all.
