Reason to Smile- Incomprehensible Challenges Turned on Their Heads!

Today’s ‘Reason to Smile’, post is a link to a video about a wonderful young man who lives in the USA. This young man’s name is Patrick Henry Hughes & he was born without eyes & also with a tightening of the joints that prevents his limbs from ever straightening. He has been blind & wheelchair dependant since birth, but despite his incomprehensible challenges, he has achieved some truly incredible feats of human adaptation & perseverance...
At the beginning of the film, Patrick’s father speaks of their initial reaction
As parents to finding out that their son was so severely disabled. Patrick senior says on the film-‘Why us? We played by all the rules, we worked hard; what did we do to deserve this?’.
I think that most of us who watch this video can relate to this hugely brave & frank admission of frustration.  
I won’t spoil for you any further, what is a truly an incredible short film.
Please take 7 minutes out of your day to be inspired…
