    Dear all,

    Some days ago, my friend sent me a video link, I watched the video and I found it very touching. So I strongly recommend you all to watch this 10-minutes video, about a pianist who have four-fingers only. Although she has only four fingers in total, she plays so well, even better than many people, including me. What I appreciate most is her positive atitude towards life, she does not give up. The movie is very touching.

    The link is as follow,

    Thank you. :D

    Hi

    Yes, my friend sent me the same link a few days ago. I hope it can make all of us who are blessed with fully-functional hands, arms and legs so much more appreciative. Thanks for putting the link here.

    I have a degree in Anatomy, and I know that for many people, seeing something like this can make them feel sqeamish. I hope if any people here might feel that way, they can put that to the side for awhile, just to appreciate the miracle within this video.

    This is incredible indeed :D What a truly great and wonderful people, both Heeya and her mother. What gets me is how positive, cheerful and happy they both are - at least in front of the camera but I believe they are not acting it. This is a monument of what humans can achieve against all odds, and thinking nothing of it.

    I have found this video so uplifting, to show us how we can overcome our limitations. I recently attended at a Leon Fleisher concert. He lost the use of his right hand through some disease and gained it back with therapy. This was also inspiring. He just never gave up playing.

    :cry: That's so sad, that somebody could be born like that, when they have done nothing to desirve it.

    But she rose up from an extremely difficult challenge, and has done things with such a devestating disability, that I could never hope to do with 10 fully functioning fingers.

    Wow. Now I'm all sad and other emotions like that... time to listen to Scriabin Sonata No. 1... :cry:
