I watched a docu once and I'm certain it was about this guy, I'll check it out. My bro plays the keys beautiful, guitar too and whatever else he decides on trying musically, he's blind in one eye and has cataracts in the other so his sight is very limited. Its surprising how much the other senses kick in when one is missing or lost. They guy I watched was simply amazing, I'll let you know if its the same one.

I saw this for the first time over the weekend....amazing story. This guy at 2 years old was jamming on the piano. And his Dad....wow! What love and devotion he has to his son!

I know right, at work at 11pm, in bed for 6am, back up 11am and at school all day being with and supporting his son! Truly inspiring stuff indeed. It got to me especially because of my bro, he wasn't 2 yrs old when he started more 5/6 but he could play by ear too, just found the notes and went for it. Yes I really enjoyed it though, makes you think, eh!

Good evening gentleman,
Did you ever see the documentary about Rick and **** Hoyt?  The son was born with I believe severe cerebral palsy and cannot walk or talk but loves being pushed in his wheelchair while running.  The father started taking him on 5k races and eventually 30 boston marathons and 6 ironmans!!!  He pulls him in a boat for the swim, tows him behind for the bike and pushes the wheelchair for the run.  I can't imagine competing in 1 ironman much less bringing along a whole other person.
The love, devotion, and dedication that this man shows for his son brings me to tears...
