A baby was born without vision, his arms and legs can never be straighten. This child will never be able to walk.
As this child grows to be 9 months old, he begins to play the piano. At the age of 2 this little boy would take request for songs.This child is Patrick Henry Hughes.
Patrick Henry Hughes is an inspiration to us all. His story reminds us that none of us have anything to complain about.
When Patrick’s parents discovered his amazing gift in music, his father John said, “Ok, we are not going to playing baseball, but we are going to play music together. Let’s see how far we can run with this!”
By the time Patrick got to the University of Louisville, the band director told Patrick that he wants Patrick to play in the School Marching Band. Patrick said, “How am I suppose to MARCH?” His father John said, “If the Band Director is passionate about it, and Patrick wants to do, by golly I Will Give It My All…” So that was it, they decided that Patrick would play and John would push Patrick’s wheel chair. The father and son team became a part of the Louisville Marching Banding.
Patrick said, “God made me blind and unable to walk, BIG DEAL! He gave me the ability in the music gifts that I have, and great opportune to meet new people.” When people ask Patrick about his disability, Patrick would say, “Not Disability, More Ability!” Each one of us have the Ability, Opportune and Potenital inside us. All we have to do is to put it into action.
Today, Patrick Henry Hughes has his own music CD and his Book title “I Am Potential”. He also travels around the country to perform and give Keynote speeches.
