Patrick Henry Hughes

I just got finished bawling my eyes out watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition. You can watch it for free on abc.com. It is the one from February (it's a repeat).

It is all about a man named Patrick Henry Hughes; he is truly inspiring.

What also touched me greatly was the story of his father. When Patrick was born blind and crippled, a father's dream of playing baseball with his son was crushed. But he didn't give up, and he taught Patrick to play music. Now, Patrick's father works the night shift so he can rush home, sleep for a few hours, and then go to school all day with Patrick, and then attend to him during marching band practice.

Patrick's entire family is truly extraordinary. Watch this video below:
