The guy is called Liu Wei and he played the song Mariage d'Amour (by Richard Clayderman) using his feet. Yes, his feet because he lost his arms as a young boy of the age of 10. Here's the video below of his life and how what he thinks of life (with English subs of course :P)
As sad as it is, I don't think that he deserves pity. But instead he should be given all the respect for he is a living proof that life still goes on, regardless what you have. All we need is to be contented with what we have in life and utilize it to the maximum.
To be really honest, I had wanted to write a post on myself today (as I think most of my new friends from the blogosphere don't really know what I studied or what I'm doing for that matter). But after watching this video, I think that my story can wait as it is nothing compared to Liu Wei's.
Much is to be learned from him. Much is there to remind us to be grateful.
Watching the video makes be ashamed of how I live my life. I complain too much sometimes, forgetting that I am indeed blessed.
I may not be living a fancy large house,
I may not be driving a posh car,
I may not own a LV bag,
I may not be the most good looking chick in town,
I may not have the perfect family that the sitcoms portray,
My love live is non-existent.... :S
But,I am blessed and lucky to be having a healthy body, a right mind, my parents alive and kicking (though nagging at times because they care), my siblings and friends around me, living in a peaceful country without a bloody war (political wars exist, but at least we're still alive).
There is much to be thankful about if I really sit down and think about it. Lucky am I to have my education sponsored by the government. (yes, I am a JPA scholar) and lucky am I to be able to type this post using my fingers instead of my feet. And the list would probably continue if I type this any longer..LOL
So I guess the moral is to count your blessings and be thankful for everything you have :)
btw, I got a new pair of specs!
ps. I know I'm getting too old for such pictures, but I've gotta take more of pictures before I start work or else it'll be too late :P
pps. The next post will be on myself :)
